Months to Come 




^S,POKAN'E. August 27.— Two hun- 
dred members of the Idaho mtlltia 
were sent from their camp at Coeur 
d'Aleno today to St. Joe to tight the. 
forest fires which threatened to des- 
troy the town. The railroad has one 
hundred m*ii engaged, and the 'Coeur 
rt'Alene timber protective association 
has a large force. The timber comes 
close to the town, which is in grave 
Iterll. The govcrnmc^nt is not paying 
any attention to the fires lit the valley. 

On the Bpville branch of the Alilwau- 
itee railway -'00 ,men are lightbig n 
very large flre that is moving north. 
There is no" wind,, and the men i>.re able 
to cope with the flre._ If a givle should 
arise it will not bnly^'^read the lire 
thrOljgh an enormous body of fine tim- 
ber, but would threaten the lives 'of 
the flre fighters. The flrfes on Marble 
T'reek, sOUth of SU Joe, are also alarm- 
ing. Food has to be packed 40 iniles 
to the fire fighters. 

It will be much easier two months 
from today to comj)lIe a list of the 
persons killed in the Idaiio, ■ Montana 
and Washington forest tire* than It la 
today. Perwons who r.t'turn from tlie 
burned country say th<;re has been no 
exagg-cratlon |n their reports of , the 
lojJs of life und destruction of propt>rty.. 
The' forest service Is unable to cbtck 
up Its men and sir p08lllv«>ly how 
many are missing. On Saturday nt- 
ternoon. 'August, there were >S50 
foresters in the field. There was* a 
record of their naomss when they wei-e 
engaged, but sotne of them have been 
lost ajid the timekeepers have been 
burned to death. 

I . Will Find Skeletons 

Forestry oWcers w^o do not wish tt) 
be quoted dlrefrtty say they do not 
know how many men have been lost: 
that wherk rangers go out to cut tj-alls 
and. survey the lopsea of timber they 
will find many skeletons. The 
men were nearly alj laborers picked up 
by ,_the employmeij't agencies of Spo- 
kane and Missoula. None of the 
graduates of, the Yale forestry school 
were kljled or. injured. The eight men 
killed in the Bullion mine and thf> 
thirteen killed on the Big Fork of the 
<'oeur d Alwne wer* forest service em- 
pioyees. although not Included In the 
lists of t^e division office at Missoula. 

While Supervisor Welgle. at Wallfi 
Walla, was gathering Information con- 
cerning his missing raiigers, he receiv- 
ed reports of othprs than foresters 
killed, and the list of these totalled 
more than 100. 

These reports were unotTlclal and un- 
veriped, but the wierd tales brought to 
Spokane by. refugees seem to give

Great Loss in Montana 

BUTTK, Mont., August 27.--Nearly 
100,000 acres of range and timber lands 
were burned over by the lire which 
raged on the Pryor Creek Mountains 
for three days. The conllajiratlon Is 
now extinct, the last renuilnlng em- 
bers being put out by the rain and

Farmers 'and stockmen fought the 
fires, and Crow and Ore.- Indians- also 
assisted to some extf-nt. The force 
was supplied with pr«>vlsions by stock- 
men, and with a constant feast of 
mutton provided, the Indlan.s, Record-

LIVERPOOL, Aug. 27.— The steamer 
Mega-itic, wjth the Queen's Own 
RlHes band pla,yang"The Maple, Leaf 
Forever," drew, alongside the landing 
stage, htre-at 1:4 S o'clock this' after- 
noon. The deputy lOrd mayor, the 
officer commanding the district and 
his staff, with General Murru> and 
Captain Clive representing the War 
Office, were present to -welcome the 
Canadian regiment. The first to' come 
H'Shore wrere the pioneer squad, fol- 
lowed by'- sir Henry Pellatt and lUs 
officers. ' 

The deputy lord mayor In welcomliig 
Sir .Henry dwelt on the Importance 
of the, trade between Liverpool and 
Canada. He pointed out the great 
benefit derived from the cultivation 
of good friendship, as the present visit 
Would result. 

Sir Henry Pellatt replied briefly, 
after which The regiment disembarked. 
The soldiers lined up on the lan.illng 
stage, ' from where they murch>'d 
through cheering multitudes to the 
London & Northwestern station. There 
they were entrained for .Aldershot. 
The Irish Rifles formed a guard of 
hpnor. , 

There, was some disappointment 
owing to the fact that the lateness 
of landing today necessitated the post- 
ponement of the reception which was 
Intended ^or the Queen's Own Rifles 
here tonight. Jt was essential that 
the carnp at Alder.'^bot be reached by 
9 o'clock. 

As the men marched through- the 
streets they made an excellent im- 
preBsion, ju(^ging from the compli- 
mentary remarks passed by sppctators. 
men, showed that they were delighted 
with their voyage, .seasickness troub- 
ling' but few of them. • 

LONDON,, Aug: 27.— The Standard 
says that the arrival of the Queen's 
Own Rifles is. another step in the or- 
gofilzatlon of the forces of the em-' 
pire on a common principle. It s^dda 
that Canadian-born soldiers proved at 
Pnardeburg tbat they only rfquired 
Some tnldltlonal training to become the 
equals of any soldiers In the world.

from the writings of Rev, George Jack- 
son, t>f Victoria College. In this con- 
nection, and It Is probable that an in- 
teresting discussion will take place. 
Tomorrow, too, the sociological com- 
mittee will .report, and It Is antiCpattd 
that their report will be an Interesting 
one. , 

The Educational Coirimlttee, whose 
report has been eagerly looked for- 
ward to, finished its work last evenlpg 
at IQL Qtclock. The early part of the 
report was of a routine nature. It was . 
at the evening session that signs, of 
storm appeared on the horizon. , "The 
bulk of the report as i)rinted yester- 
day had been passed with a slight ex- 
ception until the following Item was 
reached: "In regard to the other re-, 
quests of these memorials, we re'com-. 
mend that as In our opinion the con- 
trol of theological teaching Is suffic- 
iently secured by the recommendations 
already presented ao f'urther legisla- 
tion Is required." 

Cries of "Vote, vpte," were then 
heard. Counter calls for the memorial 
of the laymen of the Toronto Confer- 
ence fTjtttrtved. This- memorial con- 
cluded as follows: 'That this annual 
conferfhce memorialize the next Gen- 
eral Conference to take such action us 
may be necessary to eliminate from 
ail our theologcal, schools and colleges 
such teaching concerning the Holy 
Scriptures aa IS contained in tine Rev. 
Geo. .Jatkaon's recent book: "Studies 
In the Old Tipstamcnt." 

,Rev. Dr. Cleaver also, presented an 
umentlment to the Item Just brought 
forward by the i?ducational Committei . 
The amendment :he bfffred called upon 
the conference to condemn certain un- 
settling, and Injurious teachljig whicli 
had gone forth, specimens of which He 
quoted fnun Rev. Dr. JVickson's book. 

Ab the Ueni of the committee's re- 
port was h'gislation and the atnendment 
appeared to be an expression of opin- 
ion, it w'as ruled out of order in that 

In order tl),it full opportunity may be 
gl\eii to inve.stigateany charges con- 
cerning preaching in the colleges the 
conf.TPnoe moved that Dr.' Cleaver be 
heanl on Monday morning. * 

Thf conimlttoe's report was adopted 
as a whole almost unanlmouslv.

Morning Session 

After the opening exercises of the 
general conference this morning the 
missionary committee report was. taken ' 
up. Dr. Young, chairman and R. W. 
Clarke, secretary. A large nunjber of 
items were passed. A few items caus- 
ed considerable debate. One was relat- 
itig to a request from the AVoman'a 
Missionary society for a portion of the 
missionary offerings taken In the Sun- 
day' schools. The sum was placed at 
not more than 20 per cent allocate! 
at the discretion of the general, boaii 
of missions. The request of the Wo 
man's Missionary society la oonsldcrod 
fair In view of the important place 
their work has assumed. They are In- 
dispensable helpers in all the mlsslbn 
fjelds. Mnny of ' the Sunday school 
teacjhers are workers In the Womah's 
Missionary society. In return for the 
proportlov Of the funds n.sked for thcv 
will- assist more definitely in Instruct- 
■Ing .the boys and girls in mlsslonarv 
Knowledge. Hitherto they have not felt 
free to do so, as their" share in Sunday 
school prexpaganda had not been recog- 
nized. The opponents to this recom- 
mendation thought It was' a departure. 
from the original agreement with the 
Woman's MIsaionary society and that 
-there was no reason why the, Sunday 
school should l>e asked to do this more 
than any other organization. 

Rev. Dr. Allen and Rev. Mr.^ Shore 
.favored the clause stroVigly. The c ju-

,'1'oniorrow seven by.-laivs will be 
subinittod <to property owners of the 
c-ity for their approval or rejection. 
The measures are: 

1. The XTndergTOUiia;^|el«ipl)Oi»« By- 
Law. ■ ■'•. %_]' • " \ '': ' ■ 

2. The Sewer Loan Guarantee By- 

8. The. Spring Ridge Lands Author-

4.. The $50,000 School Loan By-Law. 

B. The Dallas Road ELoreshore By- 

6. The Isolation Hospital _ByrLaw. 

7. The Public Convenience Loan 

It Is greatly to be hoped that the 
property owners of the city will see 
their way clear to vote for the meas- 
ures submitted. Victoria cannot af- 
_ford at the present stage of Its pro- 
gress to quibble over matters of such 
importance to its material welfare. 
To sink all differences and to ratify 
the proposed measures means that 
Victoria will solve several acute prob- 
lems, will gain needed facilities, and 
will give conditions here yet another 
fillup onward In the road~ of pros- 

Reference has been made on several 
previous occasions to the Under- 
ground Telephone By-Law. The 
measure Is designed ,to rid the city of 
-telephone poles and overhead wires in 
the business district, and inakes pos- 
sible the extension of the underground 
system thrrraghout the city generally. 

The advantage of the propotial are 
obvious. Any citizen who will visit - 
the CaueeWfiy and contrast its present 
appearance* with that of a .year ago, 
will, he prepared Co admit that the. 
ctty^'couia aftord. to pry TitJeraaty T^^^^ 
riddlng_lis thoi:oughfAre8 elsewhere of 
^he, unsightly poles and wires which 
cloud and obstruct the view, without* 
taking into accotint the lessening of 
the fire risk. Under the present pro- 
posal this will be done at no cost to 
the city. The city finances $100,000 
for the company, "the company pays 
the Interest and 'provides the sinking 
fund half yearly. The city has as Us 
security, the ownership and control of 
the conduits, wires, cables, etc., here 
together with the whole assets of the 
company in* Vunc.ouver, New West- 
minster and elsewhere throughout the 

In the event of .the agreement with 
the company not being ratified at ihe 
present timc,"'the latter ppoceecla with 
the installation of its new offices oji 
an* ^overhead wire basis. It will be 
impossible for the city to have the 
-wires placed underground during the 
life of the company's fraiwhlse save 
at the expense, cost and charge of the 
«ity. . 

The Sewer Loan Ciuarantee By-Haw 
riust recommend iUelf to ,th«. property 
holders. The passing "of the by-law 
provide^ for the guarantee by the city 
of An additional loan of $50,000 to lie 
raised upon the security of the rents 
twid -tajccs and sewer connection rentals 
liwposed by the Sewers By-Law, the- bs expended upon sewer ex- 
tensJons. Constantly growing, yic-. 
loria must have additional eewers, and 
It ,te only to be hoped that the coun- 
cil of ndxt year, provided th6 scheme 
can not be developed during the pre- 
sent twelveinonth, will devise a 
Scheme for general sewerage extension 
sufficient to cope with the demands of 
a city of three times the present 
population. In the meantime t^e pre- 
sent' loan Is necessary, urgently ne- 
cessary to provide extensions con- 
Blstent with th« existing system.

The bylaw to rrflse $75,000 for the 
protection of the foreshore of Dallas 
road is submitted in accordance with 
the arrangement entered into with the 
provincial government under which the 
latter agrees to grant $25,600 towards 
the undertaking. 

The necessitv for coping with the In- 
roads of the ocean at this point have 
been brought home to the people of 
Victoria time and again. It la not a 
matter which brooks of delay. Any 
money expended upon perfecting and 
protecting Victoria's famous bejich 
drive is money well invested. Visitors 
in the past have expressed astonish- 
ment that the matter had not been 
dealt with long ago. . Victoria {las an 
asset the value of which can not easily 
be calculated in its beach drive and 
ocean park, and the work to which 
the provincial government is prepared 
to grant such liberal assistance if un- 
dertaken at the present Juncture, is 
one not only of • coriservation but of 
improvement. _ ^ 

So much attention has been drawn 
to the need for a proper Isolation hos- 
pital in this city that comment upon 
the bylaw authorizing the raising of 
a loan of $15,000 for the purpose. Is 
unnecessary. To this proposal the 
provincial government "also grairts 
$5,000. ' 

The conditions existing at the iso- 
lation hospital have been disgraceful 
and such as seriously reflect upon 
every citizen of the capital of British 
Columbia. Ev^y member, of the medi-. 
ctW profession in Victoria has urged 
the need for a 'new Isolation hospital 
and it Is only the ignorance qf citizens 
generally with regard to the tru e co n- 
dltloh of affairs there that has re- 
«iiUti^,lri the deitty Iri rempdying-tfrtmia 

Victoria ,ts constantly to a greater 
degree becoming the mecca of tourists 
troth every part of the Aftieri'can con- 
tinent- They arrive in shoals through- 
put the Bumnier months and not a day 
throlighout the.^year bat they are in 
evidence in the city streets. The need 
for conveniences of the kind proposed 
Ip the last bylaw, to erect at the west 
end cif the causeway, is apparent to all. 

There "have been frequent criticisms 
of Victoria's municipal government 
during the past few years. At times 
these criticisms have no doubt b6en 
deserved. But the fiiiture of any of 
these bylaws to be submitted tom<or- 
row will not in the first Instance re- 
flect upon the municipal government of 
the city. ..The mayor and council have 
done their duty when they submit the 
measures outlined to the property 
owners of the city for approval or re- 
jection. If they are approved, as the 
ihdlcatiftns are that they will be pver-_ 
whelmlngly, Victoria . takes other 
strides in its forward march." If they 
are rejected, then is Ephraim wedded to 
his idols, yictorians are satisfied with 
things ag they are.' There is no more 
dahgero^s habit of mind. There is no- 
thing more fatal to the future of a cltyJ

No doubt Is there, that Canada, as 
an investment field Is one of the nviHt 
attractive of the present times. It la 
a new country, with all before it. The 
personality of inOsl who are Kuldlng 
Ir.s destinies Is marked with energy 
and confidence ..ill their countrv'.s fu- 
ture.. This 3j)lrU i.s the birtbriKht of 
those whose cnu.lles are rooked in 
(.Canada. It Is a gift to others who have 
adopted Canada as foster mother. Pro- 
gress has been enough in Canada to 
allow caplUU to feel comparatlvelv 
safe here. Sufficient nation building 
has been accomplished to banish grave 
capital risks as exist in many other 
countries. The building which remains 
to be done will insure the obtention to 
capital of adequate rettirn. 


(Continued From Page One.) 


In an interesting article the Mone- 
tary Times' gives an analysis of the 
amount of foreign capital i nveste d in 
CanadaL. The article is one of a scries 
the tw.o' first dealing with British and 
American Investments. British invest- 
ments for the past five years atnounted 
to the enormous sum of $605,453,852. 
Arherican Investments for an_ indefi- 
nite period have aggregated $279,075,- 
000. For^gn capital other thaft the 
two tncntloHed invested in the Domlri- 
ion amounts to $77;88*,650.

equal the total of jnoney sent from all

bers on the general mission board. 
There are now 43 members; 24 of these 
elected by the twelve annual confer- 
ences, and 12 by the general confer- 
ence. The rest are general officers, and 
theref<»«v e*»ofncio members. The re- 
commendation was to make the local 
superintendents of missions and tho 
deputy treasurers ex-offlcio members. 
There are ten of tfieso altogether and 
more may be appointed. These men 
are required to attend the meetings of 
the mission board every year, because 
of, the Information they 'have Upon^the 
field work .They take part in all the 
proceedings but cannot ,vote. The con- 
stitution of the ehurcli generally re- 
.qulrea an equal representation of lay 
and ministerial delegates. The ex- 
offlcio members are mostly ministers. 
This would make an undtie propoijtton 
of ministers and as these local super- 
intendents are appointees of the mis- 
sion board,, they would have a vote on 
their own appointments. ■ ■=>»«, 

The conference decided that the 
board was sufficiently large and voted 
strongly not to admit the local super- 
intendents or any others as full mem- 
bers for the present. 

A considerable discussion arose with 
regard tojthe numiber of signatures on 
-liheques- 4r*wn-on tiie-niission fun<i8. 
A number of the delegates believed 
that there should be two or three slg- 
naturefl, and it was suggested that a 
lay as well ^ as a clerical treasurer 
.should l>e appointed In cqnnection with 
the board. Dr. fe. B. Byckman, of 
Kingston, Ont,.. said that he had nev€^ 
heard anything but commendation with 
reference to the administration of the 
mission funds. If two treasurers were 
appointed one of them would be In A 
purely honorary position. 

Finally Mr. N. W. Roweil. of Toronto, 
explained that in connection with the 
cheques issued there were always two 
Signattires, those of the treiasurer and 
the accountant. He further stated that 
the conference was discussing a mat- 
ter details of which belonged to the 
board of missions, and were purely a 
question of organization. 

An amendment by- Rev. J. C. Speer. 
of Toronto, that a lay as well as a 
clerical treasurer be appointed in i 
hectlon with the mission board i- 
overwhelmingly defeated.- 

The board of missions- committee In 
the course of its report drew atten- 
tion to a memorial which had been re- 
ceived from the conference of the 
friends of the thdians IfT British Co- 
liunbia. This memorial dealt with the 
Indian title to land in the province. 
The committee recommended that the 
question was so complex a one-that tRe 
conference should nOt express an opin- 
ion and went on to venture the hopi? 
that the respective^ governments con- 
cerned would decide the que.stion of the 
title In the near future in view of the 
unrest which prevailed among the In- 
dians in of the province. 
The Indians were retrommended in the 
report to move along constitutional 
fines in their efforts to a,rrive at a 
solution of the claims which they were 
-putting forward. This Item of the re- 
I>>rt was adopted and a motion added 
to it to the effect that the general 
board of missions be empowered to 
take action with regard to the memor- 
ial with which the report dealt. A noti- 
fication of the action of the conference 
In this matter vvjll be communicated to 
the department of justice at Ottawa 
and to the attorney getieral of British 

When the mornintr siission adjotimed 
the report of the <JOtnmittee 'on mis- 
sions was still beins. considered. 
Afternoon Session 

At the afternoon sessioir the hear- 
ing of the report of the comrnlttee cm 
missions was concluded. A feature of 
this was an appeal to the conference 
ti.' provide the nccessai-y machinery to 
-mrpiernent a national^ ^eheisie"" of 

ent a 

'evangollcation,., combined with a world 
wide movement of prayer. The 
evangelistic note, struck at the. pre- 
ceding nigiit's^ session b y Pr ofessor C. 
E. Bland, of Montreal, has found a 
whole-hearted responsive chord 

throughout the conference. Before the 
sessions come to a conclusion It is an- 
ticipated a powerful committee, to 
wortr^in jCo- operation with all the 
other principal cpnnextcmal con»nilt- 
teea, will be formed, to provide the 
radiating Influences of. Evangelism 
l)y„ which it Is hoped to awaken the 
church to a realization that It has a 
fnlsBlon even grctiter than that to-

Is the 
To Be 


Read What 
One of the 
Has to Say 
On the 



Tlif liii^- (]ii(xtiiiii is, "What is the price 
poiri.L;- lo 1)1- lu'.M 111! Hit h?" August, , th'e; . 
monthOf l'"uniiiiire Sales, is a.lmost a thing 
of the past, and Septemher, the month- of 
regular prices, is* "just -around the corner." 
If, perchance, yo.n may require something' in 
furniture furnishings dujirtg Sep-' 
;tember, will you have tp; pay thiose- k'igti, , 
regular pricey.? > That's the question; - : 

Apd it brings up the big question qf 
*^,Hon<esty in Advertising." 

Of course, no man. who gives the matter 
any thought at alj, believes all he sees in bar- 
garn^dvei'tisements. Occasionally there 
arise conditions which makes necessary price 
reductions to obtain ready nroney, or to dis- 
pose of 'undesirable Stock, but these are rare 
and not difficult to distinguish from the blat- 
ant headlines so common in your daily paper. 

Many of the largest and most reliable re- 
tail stares in the world. have commenced. a 
campaign against misrepresentation in ad- 
vertising, and nowadays no exaggerated re- 
ductions or faked regular prices arc ever 
shown in their ads. 

We canr<ot do better than quote from the 
advertisements of Gimbel. Bros. — one of th*e 
largest stores in thcworld. Just read 

A Few Brief Extracts From 
Gimbel Advertising 


"in this age' of misrepresentation and 
hewspaper exaggeration, the mcrclmnt who 
is contents tell, the simlpfle truth about.the 
goods he sells nfust eventual ly "\v;j h boITi ih"e~ 

■''■^^•^'■ 1 

3 ;1 

golden opinion and the loyal patronage of 
thinking peaple. ^~ . 

"Gimbels are taking a stand in this matter, 
simply because 'we are not vvil l i i ig to h ave 
our advertisements\lasse(l with the exagger- 
ated ads. sudi as filixevery. daily newspaper 
dailv." ,^x' ' ■ 

"We want you to fe<Jl cGtnfident when you 
see a price printed in the Giml)el advertise- 
ment that that price is the lowe.^t that can be 
offered for merchandise o^cquaLvalue and' 

i ', 

_ "The time is past when it is necessary to 
iise flaring type. You know and we know 
that no one is going -to give you gold dollar^ 
for fifty cents. . All the people want to.know 
is— what they can buy, whei^e they can buy it 
and the price at vVhicTTit CJ^n be bought. They 
are everlastingly tired of hearing, 'reduced 
from $8.oo to $3.95. or $2.50 values for $1 .25,' 
and so oti. If you buy' it at Gimbel's and it is. 
not right, send it back."' 

, "W^e have taken a decided stand on the. 
question of exaggerated values and our an- 
nouncements stand solely upon their veracity 
Genuinely' truthful statements, free" froiri 
exaggeration, free from comparatfve value, 
and censored, in the shiirpest possible man- 
ner to avoid any unintentional misstatemerits 
or misrepresentation." . 

Put the name '"Weiler" where "Gimbel" 
is in the above and ybuf hive the poliey of 
this Store and the reason why this, is the 
store "Where the most Furniture is Shown 
and sold."

Paul H. Hanns, ptofessor of pedagogv 

In- Harvard University. He declares 

in Good Housejceeplng that a training 

for ^pnomy is. imperatively needed. 

'He says :...,", 

The Insistence. that colleges for wo- 
men^ should provide good courses In 

household economics l.s justified by 

two important considerations: First, 

that for most college women the col- 
lege Is a final vocational as well as a 

final "cultural" school; and, second, 

that the. vocatlop of most college wo- 

m^n must continue t'> be In the future 

as It has been in the pnat, homo mak- 
ing and home keeping, ^ncludln^,. of 

fourse, the oversight and dlrec.tlon of 

household affairs. " ^ 

Up to the present time, only one 

vocation has "been recognized In th«( 

training for women that the colleges 

afford— teaching; and even that has 

too often been confined to general and 

specialized scholarship, no attempt, 
j or little attempt, being made to supply 
jndiMiuately the neotssnary technical 
j training In the history, theorj', and 
I I'ractlcc of education every 'teacher 

.should receive. But the vdcatlonal 

function of the college in this parti- 
cular field has been freely, recognized. 
Wh«n we remember that teaching 

Is for the. most part', the permanent 

occupation of celibate women only, we 

arc' forced to conclude, that women's 

colleges exist prlrnarlly for single wo- 
men, and that they are content to 

sefld /their graduates (ujt lht<i the worltl 

trained for no vocation, or for only 

a temporary vocation; or that they 

^feel no responsibility lor training 

them for the ine.\1table vociUlon of 

most of them, or that this vocation 

requires no tralhing. These cont^lu- 

slons may not be wholly Justified. It 

Is possible that some colleges for wo- 
men would like ,to offer suitable 

courses, but have n,ot the means to 

do so. But there can bo no question 

that the cdncluslons Ju.m drawn from

been out of town, but have played 
happily at home. A few of the older 
pupils have been at work, and they, 
too, have gained In strength and self-- 
rellance. Almost without exception, 
the children are glad to take up their 
work again. They like the order and 
discipline of school. They are Inter- 
ested In their lessons and respect^ and 
like their teachers. The opening of 
the George" Jay schqol tomorro:(v will 
create no little excitement among 
children who must leave their old 
classes to meet In many cases new 
teachers; But by the end of the week 
all arrangements for the season's 
worH will been completed, and! 
the pupils and teachers will have be- t 
come acquainted. The pupils ^ent to 
this school are to be congratulated pn 
the fine building and large play- 
ground. It Is unfortunate that the 
Moss street school Is not ready for 
o'cf-upatlon. but what cannot be help- 
ed must be put up with. The chil- 
dren win not, perhaps, be much the 
worse for beginning school under the 
old conditions. If ^he rooms from 
which they, are to be taken are over- 
crowded, out-of-doors Is big and a 
longer playtimes \vlU_ help -to make the 
days pass the more quickly. It Is to 
be hoped that the coming year will , 
a haphy and profitable one for teach 
ers and pupils. No work Is being 
done In Victoria more important than 
that which la being accomplished In 
the classes of our public schools. : If 
parents always remembered this, and 
gave the teachers, their sympathy and 
help, their children would be greatly 
th* gainers.

Pacific Northwest Cricket Title 
Won by Capital Cricket 
Eleven in Tournament "Final 
Against Vancouver — ;Scores 

Victoria has secured the Pacfic 
northwest c}?ami)*onship. By defeating 
Vancouver in yesterday afternoon's 
match, the ttnal of the Internatloniil 
tournament which was played through- 
out last weelt by ten representative 
teams, the local eleven laid hold of the 
cup for another season- ^The marj^in 
by w^hich the Islanders got possession 
of the silver wasn't great, their vic- 
tory being by taut thirteen runs. How- 
\v . i, a luisa i s -aa goo - d ao a niiW, ami 

through his long, useful, gallant con- 
tribution of 33 seemed ill at ease, but 
got there just the same. Nelson was 
clean bowled by L. York, 31-5-6. Pgel 
caught Martin, bowled L. York, tele- 
graph 41-7-7, and that 148 seemed a 
long, way otT. 

C. Sweeney and Hodges now settled 
down to hu8ine.s8. Runs came freely, 
assisted, in some_caseB, by Victoria's 
indisposition in ' the lleldlng depart- 
ment. Sometimes it was an absolute 
malady. C. Sweeney played sterling 
cricket, his being decidedly the best 
performance of the game. The pair 
carried the total from 41 to 105 before 
Mr. Barnacle made a statuesque one- 
handed catch, disposing of Captain 
Hodges, 105-7-33. Thrjee^wickets still 
to fall, and 44 runs to win! A good 
game! Well, rather! 

The tea Interval had been cut 15 
minutes. • 

It was hot time bijt runs that were 

wanted. « 

9' ' 

W. H. Crossneld kept Sweeney com- 
pany until Mr.^ Barnacle distributed 
his stum psr telegraph 127-8-7. . 

Excitement livas intense so' that Mr. 
Coats received a hahd for the stopping 
of several hot shots to pqjnt. With 
bdtsman L. >'. Murphy all^wterest was 
centred,' for that Insatiable bowler 
would not be denied. Oven went the 


though they just missed defeat it was 
evaded and, after aU^that is the great 
point. A large crovvd,_ between eigl^^ 
and nine hundred, according to con- 
"ftWj?*^^" ""'tmatt\a. ii.-i< tiLhi»(i- the.gumfi.^ 

Captain Hodges win the jind 
decided to send Victoria to tlie bat. 
Martin scored 2 from's tirst 
ball, the balance of the over tjeing 
scored by '''dots. Morris then took a 
hand in the bowling, *nd from ills 
* third delivery A. T. Lovvry wai^ beau- 
tifully taken In the slips by Payne, 

B. Tye joned Martin, and was play- 
ing well when he became the victim of 
a sustained appeal for a catch from a 
ball which hit him just below the el- 
bow, -13-2-10. : I 

Pierce, who followed, fell to the third j 
catch in the slips byMPayne, 13-3-0. 
Bravo Vancouver! 

With the advent of Captain y*t!r\i 
the spectators, who by this time lined 
the grounds,, prepared for their usual 
treat, as Martin waa playing well with | 
the exception of an early chance. With i 
the score at 21, Crossfleld upset the 
captain's stumps. 

Some Victorian said: "This la unus- 
ual wearther for August." 

Martin continued to score and so did 
the late comer, -J^-ii.- Qlllespie. Air 
though the bowHng -was weii! on' the 
spot. Captain Hodges made several 
changes. Notwltlistanding. the score 
crept up and 81 was reached before 
Gillespie plunked one off Barrs into 
Morris' hands. His innings of 3^ was 
an excellent conti*il>utlon at a critical 
time. ' . 

J. C. Barnacle filled the . vacancy. 
The score was carried td' 103 at. lun- 
cheon hour^,_ Martin. 37; Barnacle, 11. 

After the " interval CrosSfleld and 
Morris took up the attack for Vancou- 
ver. It now looked as. though Victoria 
had settled down to" give the vliiiltors a 
leather hunt. Buns canis: freely until 
Mr. Barnacle had fittained ,31 runs, in- 
cluding 6 four-s, when he fell a vifitlnj 
to the UB.W. diseiisc. 1 33-6-3.1. Al- 
most' Immediately was he followed by 
Martin, first man In and eTglith wicket 
to fall, with a mighty useful 41. 

Hebdcn put up a' stuh'born defe nse 
but could ilnd hone to stay with him. 
T. Galliher, the. last man, dashed the 
ball around for eight, and the .score 
board read M8-'lT)-8. "Not enough! 
Not enough!" was heard on every aide. 
Incidentally Vancuuvf r was elated. 
Their fielding was excpnent and thev 
had disposed of a formi(,Iab!c batllitg 
Hide for a seemingly ridiculously small 
.score. - . ■ . ' .. ■■.,,

When Uhlan stepped a mile at 
Cleveland without a windshield In 
1..58 3-4 he becijime In reality the "two- 
minute trotter" ' .which the harness 
horse world has been anticipating for 
the last- decade. Thlis performance, 
within a quarter second of thei mailt 
set by Li(^u Dilc^n with the artlfic al iiid, 
eclipses In quality her mark of l.lSS 1-2, 
which has stood since 1903. '^'rlt Ids who 
were present at North Randall say the 
handsome black gelding has not reach- 
ed the limit of his speed and predict 
a lowering in at^tuaf time of the record 
of the trotting qUeen, and that without' 
tlje wlndbread. Uhlan's feat of reeling 
off a rtille to a wagon In 2.01, with- 
out wlndshlelfj, glveirt to Mr. Billing.s' 
trotter the two mo^t coveted honors 
of the trotting turf. Thai the New 
V<jrk sportsman drove Uhlan in the

votion to ,the sjiort. which has prntnpf,-

That there will be some class to

WcWnt builders "0 see us about: roofing. 
We want to. demonstrate why it is to.your 
advantage to roof your building with 
Maltlioid Rooiing-— . 
and we will do this to • '~' 

your complete satisfaction. 

We will show );ou beyond any question 
that Malthoid is the very 
higliest type of rooting perfection and 
made so well that it will last as long 
as the building it covers. ' ' 

We will show you that Malthoid is a better 
.rooting than shingles — 
is more satisfactory than ir^n — 
is cheaper than tin — 
in fact, we can prove that there is no 
other roofing known to the building 
trades that is as good — 
as durable — • 
as long lasting — 

as water proof — — — 

as fire resisting and as theap as 
Malthoid Roofing. 

It has got every other brand of 

ready roofing marking time while it is 

progressing — 

there is more of it sold ' 

on the Pacific Coast than all other 

brands combined and it speaks well for 

the intelligence of biiilders that this 

is so. 

The makers of~M?[lthdid Roofing know 
. their business for they have been at 
it for twenty-six years and they not 
only make this roofing to sell but 
they make it to last and to please _ 
the people who buy it. 

They would rather have the good will 
"~of the builder than his money — and 
' they get both by the way they make 

Malthoid Roofing. 

If you have roof troubles of any 
kind or of any description —^ no , 

^ -matter -what ,kind of a roof \^ou have 
on your building, see us at once 
and; wc will help you out of your 

-difficulty. .: __ -

• We have for salg/a valuable property fronting (5ri deep water in a sheltered position, con- 
taining, a la'rge deposit of Limestone and Glay suitable for the manufacture of the finest grade 
of Cement. _Jt_is well kriown that the/demand for Cement is very much in excess of the sup- 
ply. It ?^ now used extensively as a Building Material, and owing to the large amount of 
building', laying of'cement sid'ewalks-and foundations for pavements, etc., now going on in the 
Coast Cities, contractors and others are unable to obtain sufficient material t&-ttse-in their 
business. ' Almost daily articles appear in the press relating the same story^— the shortage of 
cement; T^he property which is now offered by. us for" sale can be highly recommende4 to 
any one looking for an investipent of this nature. The shipping facilities are of the best, and 
. any intending purchaser can very easily satisfy themselves as to both the quantity and qual- 
ity of both Limestone and Clay. , . ' " __

Americans agree to this suggestion it 
will be (lulte a concession on their part,

Bayardo Meets .His Fate at 
Goodwood— Polo Cup Inter- 
national— -S-porting Notes of 
Great Britain 

Bayardo, the r^rered of the public 
and the idol of his owner, met his 
fite at Goodwood, when starting with 
odds at 20 ,to 1 laid on him he was 
beaten .by H. E. Beddlngton's Magic 
in tlie Gold Yase. It was probabTy the 
blgfe^est sensation of the season. For 
this race they had the old-fashioned 
Hag .start. Magic soon e.stabliahed a 
long lead, and not till they had gone 
a mile and a half and were sweeplnir 
crown the hill at the end of the straight 
aid Danny Malier start to ' make up 
ground. The majority waited to see the 
American jockey take the lead. Bay- 
ardo drew almost level,' bitt l^ia Jockey 
was riding hliii by this time and Rlck- 
aby was out ta win his race. A. few 
strides they were level and one look- 
ed for the wonder to go ahea(J, bat It 
was not to be done, for the chestnut 
was going as strong as a Hon. There 
was a gasp, a shout and then a rush. 
Magic had won by a neck and there 
was general grief that Bayardo had 
gone once too often to the well, and 
perhaps' had £. 10,000 looped off his 
value, by that defeat. Mr. Falrie's colt 
blew and sweated on returning to the 
imddock, biit the symptoms were only 
such as might be expected of any 
horse after a hard rice. He was glvr 
ing- Magic nearly •double the welght- 
I'or-age allowance, and this, of course, 
mitlgatea his defeat to some extent. 

interesting details bf an emlneriUy 
business like plan of campaign In re- 
gard, to the recovery of the Internd- 
tionai Polo cup have been issued by 
the Hurlingham club. The fact that the 
Old Etonians were unable to go to the 
■ United States as- arranged this sum- 
-vme'r has not disconcerted the polo au- 
ttiorities, who are determined to move 
steadily aheiad in their effort "to" " get" 
back the trophy. Bi-lefly it has been 
decided to send a teatft across the At- 
lantic next spring. Captain Hardress 
lytoyd, who was appointed captain as 
far back as last February, will lead 
the team, and will Invite the follow- 
ing plavers to accompany him: Cap- 
tain F. W. parrett, W. S. Buckingham, 
Captain L. St. ,1. C. Cheape. A. N.. Ed- 
wards, R. N. Grenfell, Captain Mathew 
Ivannowe, and E. AV. Palmes. Possibly 
several more will be asked to rhake the 
Joiirney. Hurlingham hope It will be 
possible to play the Internatldnal 
matches th« cnil of May, so that the 
players will be able to return to Eng- 
land for the champion' , cup, the fltnl 

Charlie Heffernon, champion of 
South Africa, who • was placed second 
In the Olympic Marathon race, met G. 
W. Gardiner, the crack English runner, 
in a four mile race at Newbury, the 
Colonial winning by 2 1-2 yards. The 
ev-ent was described an an international 
champion-ship and was for a irtrrse^of 
$125. The course wiis a small one, and 
to cover the four miles it ha4 to be 
covered thirty-eight times. The men 
raced~practlcally side by side imtll the 
bell on the lap, when Heffernon 
darted away at a, great pace, Gardiner 
followed in hot pursiilt and a magniii- 
cent struggle ensded. Heffernon's ef- 
I fort was well timed and h«L won by 
I th«! distance stated. .' f v 

In a little over two w«iScii time^to 
be precise September 1 — the football 

I season will agajn be ushered in. As- 

jsociation league players have already 
started tratnTn|r "tor the campaign. 

jThere seems to be. considerable doubt 
as to bow the big professional clubs 
will fare, as there are not a dozen who 
made a profit last season. The threatr 
cned strike, of players 'ia!f<t season kill- 
ed a great deal of Interest in the ga hie, 
though -the low standard i>f-play* was^ 
responsible for the falling off in the 
attendance at the various grounds. 

'There is no doubt that the game has 
been made too much of a .business, and 
people are more concerned than they 
were with the sport of the thing. It Is 
not Bice to know that success comeS 
to the club with most money; and the 
football, assooltition' will .have to make 
many alterations in their rules, so as 
to prevent the rich clubs buying up 
■'talent" when they are Iri trouble.

'The annual contest lor the Wlng- 
flel,d sculls and amateur championship 
of {he Thames took place fecetitly over 
the Putney to Mortlake course and was 
won by W. D. Kinmear. The holder 
A. A. Stuart, of the Kingston R. C, did 
not defend the tltlei but considerable 
interest was taken In the meeting of 
Mr. Kinnear and "W'. D. Bourne, New 
(.'oUege, Oxford, owing^to the fact thft 
the latter had only met defe!at by 
three-quarters of a length for the Lon- 
don cup. In the sculls Kinnear llnished 
a winner by ten lengths In the good 
time of 23 mlha. 12 sees. 

Though, owing to rough weather, J. 
Wolffe had to abandon ■ his practice 
swim from Calais to' Dunkirk in pre- 
paration fpr his cross-Channel attempt, 
he achieved a firto performance by 
swimming ten miles In a ver>' heavy 
sea. Those 6n board the motor boat 
accompanying Wolffe had an exciting' 
time when a'bout a rnlle off Gravellnes. 
■Wolfle, who had been aylmmlng be- 
hind the boat, was lost to view for 
some minutes, and It was only after 
the boat had circled around that he 
'.vn.i Mbserved, a considerable distance 
joic lii.s course. Soon after, on the ad- 
vice of the pilot, the swim wa.=i aban- 

Glorious weather favored the second 

International match of the English F. 
A. teams' tour played In Johannesburg 
against an eleven of South .'Vfficajiind.^ 
when the game was started t,ln re;, were 
13,000 .si)iTtiit(4-.s on t4>e ground. At 
half time the English team led by 3 to 
1. The visitors continued to Increase 
the lead and when time was tip were 
winners, 6 to 2. .... 

During the last few yedw tbere has 
been a rare'shuflling of the* fortunes-pf 
county cricket~teams. The results of 
matches between Kent and Yorkshire ^ 
afford evidence which Is not at all ex-' 
aggerated. of the. extent to which form 
bus changed. .'V, short time ago York- 
shire were pre-eminent. They treated 
Kent In much the sanje way as they 
dealt with other counties, and thf 
treatment const.f ted for the greater 
part of meting out defeat with, an air 
of liberal Impartiality. This seiison' 
Kent have won b^th their matches 
with Yorkshire; the first by eight wic- 
kets, and the second, which concluded 
at .Maidstone last Saturday, by 178 
runs. Not for twenty-one years had 
the present champions asserted such 
unrelenting superiority over YprkshlJ-e 
as to beat the latter twice in a year. 
When, in 1889. they set up a Rreced- 
ent for their latest performance, their 
two left-handers, Walter Wright and 
Frederick Martin, bowled unchanged 
throughout the home match at Maid- 
stone. What u coincid ence that two 
left*hander» in Colin BTythc and Frank 
Wobllev should have bowled iincbang- 
»d frorn beginillng. to end of the r«(cent_ 
engagement. ^^ 

_,It Is gratlfyt^i to flnii HampshlrsT 
who used to be regular recipients of 
the wooden spoon making headway In 
the championship. They are now fourth 
in the table,, a fitting reward to A 
county whose struggles have been 
jnany and whose cricket has been ever 
wha:t *e may call sporting. Hamp- 
shire have never gone to preat pains 
to avert a deserved defeat, and their 
spirit of playlnig to either win or Ibse 
perhaps stands them in especially good 
stead under the new system of count- 
hng.. Middlesex cnptalned for the 
lirst time In their history, by a pro- 
fessional In the i>er8on of : Jack 
Hearne defeated Essex. The metro- 
politans are hanging on gi^jmly In 
the hope of seeing Kent sustain an- 
other reverse. ' ' ■ ' '^ 
, The M. Cv C committee considered 
the question of matches In -May 
which were rtjduced to two days on 
account of the late king's funeral apd 
it wa.'< decided that' the county 
matches unfinished owing to the fun- 
eral should not count Vn the champion- , 
ship. ., Consequent upon this rullngi

■'Joe Cans didn't know how old he 
was. He thought he was around 35 
years Of age. but In reality he was 40 
when he died. Gans was like a two- 
year-old baby to handle. In every res- 
pect." ■; ■' • 

It waa Banny Sellg, manager of the 
colored flgttter during the most suc- 
cessful part of his ring career and 
friendly with the champion long be- 
fore that, who was talking. The life 
of a man who haa carved such a his- 
tory for himself In puglTlsm as, did 
Joe Ganfl i» not easily forgotten, and 
It is because oT this .that thei holder 
of the Ughtwelfcjit title, as related bv 
Sellg, are not ortly interesting, huk 
well worth remembering. Gans wrw 
never a chap to talk to the outside 
world and although his achievements 
JiSue. boxer have been heralded far and 
wide, there are Inside-facts tbJtt 
haven't even been surmised. 

When Al Herford brought Joe Cans 
to Snn JJYanclsco In 1896 to fight 
(nmrh^s Rnchette. he-hftd^-w4«r htnr-Tr 
letter of Introductlori to Alvle King 
from some New York friend. In that 
manner King and Sell|r came Into con- 
tact with the Baltimore neero, Later 

Gaha made an effort, blocked -1>y law 
to have King as^ his rtianager Instead 
of Herforj; Still later, when Joe did 
succeed in cutting loose from Her- 
ford he induced Sellg to look kfter 
his affairs. ' ■ , 

No -one ever claimed before that 
Garis was 40 years of age at the time 
of his death but the f act as known 
to Sellg are practically Indisputable. 

"Two years ago," said Sellg, "In 
1908, I was talking with Joe one day. 
and he , said that he was 32 years old. 
I laughed at him and said that If he 
was 32, I wa«» 16. He insisted. 

"How do you know?" 1 asked htm. 

'"Ifaivi t t, . t h e- jc oard. b ook at home,' 
was Ills reply. 

"Then I .nsk hlm^ what the book said 
and he told me that It was written 
th«i:n that he was born ln-^*79. When 
I told him that would make him 38, 
Joe saldy not to tell the white folks'

Since that date the Company has installed machinery for 
pumping two flowing oil ^yells. Has commenced and is already 
far advanced with the construction of a refinery on. the ground, 
and has shipped NJNE MILES OF PIPING to convey the pro-

(By Ed^uard, Tounr) / 
, StlANGHAT,' Aug. it— A new pha?e 
of the antl-forc'ig-n mm-ejnent in Chi- 
ii«, has einerged'jiit llangchow. At a 
recent mef^ting of ..tho ■ gentry and 
prominent residents of that city regu- 
lationa were dritwn up vhich, it is 
propo.sed." should in, fiitiiro.^overn the 
renting of property liy foreigners. The 
piaetieal.-<^ett of this- iictlon. whieii. 
is lield tu eonstitj.ite a flagrant eii- 
troHcliment on treaty rights, is to 
■ inaito it \ irtuaUy impossible for for- 
eigners hencef6rth ta.x.e.U.t .ur'^l't-rty in 
Hangchow, if not throughout tho 
whole province of. Cheliiang. :ATTpar- 
entlv tho movement had Its origin in 
atrlval quarrel with tho Japanese 
.^shopkeepers some months ago. as a 
c-on.sefiuence of which the -.Japanese 
shops were closed and their owners 
were compelled to remove outside the 
-nctry: —t^ncouraggd-iiy this -success the 
local sfcntry and business men pro- 
ceeded to interfere wittr-the. taasing 
of property to missions, against which 
a protest was lodged with the g*vex- 
nor. The latest proposals restrict the 
right o£ foreigners to 

1 — Those employed 

2 — Teachers employed In the gov- 
ernment schools or Industrial estab- 
lisnients and mechanics. 

3— Consuls of every country and 
their assistants. , 

4— Missionaries of nil nationalities 
and missionary physicians. There 
must, ,hQji.^.vnr— tiring ■:pat^£rtg^slM»y.:- 
ing thafTTiev are eitgaged rmienevo- 
l«!nt and not hicratlve occupations. 

Even in these the safegnards 
restrictions and penalties prescribed 
are so numerous that the best-inten- 
tloned Chinese landlord might well be 
excused for deciding to dispense with 
the trouble and risk attached to 'let- 
ting his premises to a foreign, ten- 
ant: It miglit be imagined that it 
would be a simple matter to put an 
end to this criisade by:, appealing to 
the responsible authoritle*. But evi- 
dently the local-£ifflclals stand in sortie 
awe of the agitators, whose power is 
attested bv the servile tone ad/ipted 
lowar-ds them bv th egovernment's 

This, Indeed, .se-ms i.> be the crux 
■ 'f the matter. In an Illustration ar- 
ticle on, the subject t'he North China 
Herald remarks that far more serious 
than' the disabilities Imposed on for- 
. ign tenants, or the lavish threats of 
punishment to be meted out to na- 
tive landlords on violation of Jjnr of 
the numerous rules, threats which arc 
obviously designed to frighten Chi- 
nese owitet's of property from any 
dealingis with foreigners', is the In- 
direct evidence affprded of the upris- 
ing of a iiew irresponsible .force *lth 
whli-h Chinese oftlcials and foreigners 
alike have now to reckon. Again 
fhrotighQUt the regulations we fiml oT 
(he Hanigehtm- chamber of comrijerce 
as the aril Iter of n-11 negotiations be- 
vvecn landlord and tenant. To thiB 
body all agreements Tnt»«t- be sent for 
preliminary approval and stamping. 
All ,4i«fM*tes must, in the first place. 
i,f. repoF t e d ttv the phamber. whvr-will 
:n' turn memoriali/.e the ix)Ure. And, 
linallv, it is with thp chamber of com- 
inorce .that all ((tn^stlons of jtunish- 
nient or recommendatipn for punish- 
ihent shall re«t. 

in other words, betweeh. the foreign 
Teriant and tho ofljcials with whom he 
or his nation's representative should 
properly deal, a new organir.ation has 
come into existence, Whosf, mere whim 
iM to be sufficient to upspt all existing 
.ontrnets.Mntl with *'hom the foreign 
lopreaentatives will have all tl*e

apart from its' vague nnn-offlcial sta- 
ins, the Offielafs themsplves are pal

Thi're is no abatement in the agita- ] 
tion for the inunedlate summoning of 
the propo,sed Chinese National Assem- 
bly. Despite rep«jated rebuffs, the 
delegates from the Provincial As- 
semblies who constitute the Parlia- 
mentariaii l,eague are <'arrying on an 
active campaign, .and art sediilouBly 
endeavoring to win over princes ami 
ininiateVs to their views. So ■ far. how- 
ever, they , have" failed to shake the 
decision of the Prince Regent to ad- 
here to >the original programme. The 
.question was again fully considered ^ 
at u recent Council held at the Im- 
perial Palace. f)n the prevlotis day 
a preliminary meeting of high state 
dignitaries was Held, at which various 
8tigge??rtnns were i5ut forward. Afnong

ister of Finance, nre said, to have 
favored the compliance, with' the pe-

I t'wo-thtrdiit of those present - arc re-

•Mr. Ju.stic"? tliggins, after an ex- 
buustive huiuiry Into the worlflng of 
the system in the -bortf trade arriv- 
ed at the conclu.sloji that the appren- 
ticeship, system Is' tin8ultal)le. for fac- 
tory work under modern .'ondltitms, 
and- that, as a mode of technical edu- 
cation. It is doomed. The teaching of 
a trade,* he affirmed, did not ai)pear to 
be an a|)prppriate function ^for the 
managing director or the foreman of 
iiianufactuiing Ijusliiess*. The' substi- 
tute , for apprenticeship, as an aduca- 
tional sSisteui, he suggested, was an 
e*ienslo:i and Improvejnent of the 
.State system of technical edtieatlon. 
The edut'atlonal authorities in New 
South Wales, who, after a long period 
of cothpai'atlvely undisturbed .slumber, 
are now exhibiting, a great deal of 
well-directed ■ activity, h.\f\ already 
cecogninetl that jippreiislceabip waS

.Vrbitral.lon court supplied.

them to furnish the workers of this 
Statr, at a trilling cost, with a thor- 
oughly effective, systeht of training foi* 
liielr. respective trudr.«. They f foresaw 
tltat if the tnodern coiiditio)Hi of fac- 
tory production had not rendered the 
a pjirentlceshlp— obsolete *U must In 
lime give way before the greater ef- 
fectiveness of techiiictil educaifon. An 
apprentice learned one, perhai>B, two, 
firocps-ites In an emplrictal fashion be- 
fore spending' the rest of hla life in 
iheir monotonous repetlon. Knowing 
notliing lieyond' these processes he w.n»

The "open shop" emploj^er has for 
his purpose only- the hope that some 
time, somehow, employes will lose con- 
fidence in themselves to such an extent 
that they will voluntarily desert their 
organization, says the Motorman and 
Conductor. There Is where the "4H>«a- 
shop" advocate makes his mistake. 
That which the "open shop" advocate 
would have_ the people believe he 
means .by "open shop" Is, that em- 
ployes shall be free to join or not to 
join organizations of— their craft. He 
wants it to appear that he is very lib- 
eral and desires to maintain and pro- 
tect a sacred privilege In the Interest 
of- the employes. That privilege which 
he would have you believe he would 
protect Is the privilege of ex ercis ing

Louis S'prfckcls, 

iiendent of 

garding drafting of a new schedule, ne 
cessitated, they claim, by increased 
cost of living, and they will also ask 
for improvements In working condi- 
tions. J. J. Riel is chairman of Train- 
men and Baker of Conductors. They 
represent about five hundred men, cov- 
ering practically the entire system. 
There is some talk of the Brotherh(^od 
of Locomotive Engineers reopening 
their schedule, about . September 15 
" # ' • ■ • 

The ultimatum of the Winnipeg' Exchange to the bricklayers 
and masons expired last' week, and as 
there were no nt€n at work for the 
Lyall-Mitchell Co.. a lock-out of all 
nnion men went into force. Some five 
hundred men are directly affected, but 
the lockout will practically tie up all 
building In the city, and as there are 
millions of dollars worth of work under 
construction, the trouble corning at this 
rush period is a most serious mattetv 
Neither the men nor the contractors 
can afford to eater a prolonged fight, it 
is admitte.d4,alnd it is believed that 
thWfe'wTll be^an early settlement of the 
difficulty, which indirectly Involves 
many thousand piemibers of the allied 
building trades. 

Within one year, eighty -five unions 
have joined the California StAte^ I«*ed- 
eration of Labor, and over 19,000 
unionists have thus become afflllated. 
This Is a remarkable showing, and all 
the gains hav'e not come from the or- 
ganizations in the riiuildlng .trades. 
Secretary- treasurer Paul Scharenberg 
Is the man mainly responsible for-th^ls 
good showing. He has worked early 

and late. 

• * • 

Eighteen thousand men, members of 
the Building Trades Council, are out 
on strike, owing to the failure of the 
Otis Elevator Co. to remove machlnljsts 
from elevator construction work- In 
Chicago, 111. This work has been held 
by the American Federation to belong 
absolutely to elevator constructors, and 
machinists are held to have no right to 
take up that line of trade, 
'• • • 

The Amalgamated Association of 
Iron S'teel and Tin Workers, was suc- 
cessful this week in signing up ari 
agreement with the Republic Iron and 
Steel Co., the largest independent sfeel 
producers of the country, at Pltt.sburg., 
Pa. The settlement affects, upwards of 
3,000 men, and provides an^increase In 
wages of about five per ceht. Puddlers 
are the grefltest beneficiaries by the 
settlement, but all employees will - re- 
ceive an Increase. 

• * * 

It is understood that the amicable 
agreement entered Into before a board 
of conciliation between the Canadian 
Pacific Telegraph Co. and their com- 
mercial teleglraphers provide for the 
abolition of the sliding scale, and fixes 
the minimum wage, with $95 as the 
highest rating in western Canada, and 
$85 in the East. All telegraphers rer 
celve at least $5 per month increase^ a 
great many receive $10, and some $15 
per month increase. • , 


There is a saying tb&t bread cast 
upon the waters will return manyfold. 
H the union label is called for on every 
possible occasion, the same proverb 
will hold good. The unionist who in- 
sists upon products showing , them to 
be made by, members of organized la- 
bor win have the satisfaction of noting 
that others are calling for his goods, 
in other words, the habit helps all In 
the labor inovement — both the man or 
woman who asks for the label and the 
person whose handiwork Ifl piirAhased. 
' ■,■•■♦■♦. 

Labor pays for 'everything. It pays 
th.e expenses of living for those who do 
not work, says The Only Way, Phila- 
delphia. It pays all the expenses of 
government, all the dividends on all 
stocks and bonds, all the cost of armies 
and navies, allthe lavish expenditures 
of the wealthy. It pays for all the 
Carnegie libraries, all the. Rockefeller 
college endowments, jj- pays for build- 
ing all rnllrodda, all trolley -lines; all 
great public Improvements, as river 
and harbor work, Irrigation, etc. And 
labor has so little life after all these 
that It hns a v^ry narrow^ squeak to 
get enough to eat, let alone other ne- 
cessities. , '

the free and unrestrained right to Join 
or not to Join a labor organization. The 
fact is that where such a principle Is 
sacredly adhered to by the employer 
and employe and the true "oiien shop"

there Is greater, more effective and 
more incessant effort put forth in pro-

Ing tltat Interest, In part, by a public 
discussion in their pulpits of the pro- 
blems oX, the tollers: and 
- 'TVhereas. Ii would He' an advantage 
to both chiirch and labor to select a 
special day upon w^hlch the attention 
of all classes may be concentrated.upwn 
tlie questions which concern the toil- 
ers; therefore, beMt 

'•Resolved. That the Sunday preced- 
ing the first ^londay in Septemt>er be 
officially designated by the American 
Federation of Labor as Labor Sun- 
day,' and that the churches of America 
be requested to devote some part of 
the day to a pres efi tt i t io n of the labor 
question: and, be it further 

"Resolved,! That the various central 
and local labor bpdies be requesO-ed to 
co-operate in every legitimate way 
with the ministers who thus observe 
Labor Sunday, seeking, with them, to 
secure as large an audlencfc 'of work- 
Ingmen and others as possible." 

In acordance with the spirit of the 
foregoing resolutions, active steps have 
been taken to comply in San Francisco 
and other cities. A committee Is co- 
operating — representing the church on 
one hand, and labor on the other. 

The possibilities of showing the reli- 
gious values of the labor movement 
and emphasizing the importance of Its 
work, afford$ the clergy an opportun- 
ity to discuss the„que8tlon from many 

Let there be that co-operation on 
Labor Sunday that will mean a very 
great deal for both, parties— The clergy 
and trade unionists.

has found military form «f great -use 
In Its fight with sin. The American 
asserts that. In England, where, the

years' run. and has subjected hun- 
dreds ,of thousands of youngsters to 
Its chlvalric discipline, snob's, cads, 
shirks, and mollycoddles are feeling 
an uncongenial change in the climate 
of the country. If so, we may well 
C(/ngratulate ourselves that the spirit 
of Baynard and Sidney Ts abroad; that 
the poor, weak and unfortunate meet 
wlth-^iimecustomed consideration, and 
that 'there Is" — bo we are told and 
would gladly believe — "a band of 
youn^g knights In every English vil- 
lage aching to stop a fire, or a bolting 
horse, to thrash a bully, or help an old

a hired force for jjefence Is apt 
to go. readily into war. A nation 
burdened with a mllitary^-caste, whose 
fortunes are dependent on war. is 
liable to be rushed into war; ,but a 
nation that realizes that if the,re' is 
fighting it will be its &wn children 
who will be In It, will deal with such 
cpiestlons seriously. The segregation 
of forces for military T-tratntng and 
barrack life is an enormous waste of 
a nation's best energy, jis well as 
la,werlng to its morals. The training 
(?f the boys, and girls._toQ, in dovelopr 
ing exercises, and in habits of discip- 
line, far from being a waste, is the 
best contribution that could be made 
to education. • Such training would 
change a nation of fairly stalwart 
slouches Into one of men of dignified 
and self-respecting Jjearing. The scout 
lde«^ is. however, a" vast improvement 
on the merely military one.- It def- 
initely chaiigcs the purpose from one 
of preparation for w-ar to one of fra- 
ternity and helpfulness and peace. It 
will be welcomed -as JlPartlly by the 
liarents as by the boys and girls theni.- 
selves. It Is In the order of nature 
that BiiCh a movement should hiive. Its 
flt-Mt era of wild enthvislaum and should 
later require a good deal of earnest 
endeavor to give It any sort of per- 
-manency. It ' will no doubt be the 
■study of th<J8e prom'Qting this move- 
ment to bring it into such permanent 
affiliation with pxiistlng Institutions 
as to see to its permanency.

this, from the standpoint of the general

Ben Aissa's wife, who was recently 
tortured, has returned to her home. 
It appears from her own account that 
in trying to escape from the men who 
uere sent to arrest her at her house, 
sho fell either from a stairway or a 
terrace, and dislocated her shoulder. 
In order to make iier disclose the 
whereabouts of her husband's valu- 
ables, she was bound, and to all ex- 
ternal appear;i,nce8, suspended by the 
arm. It s possible that the dislocation 
of the shoulder was in reality caused 
by thts' TfeicfnreTrr,': and" tlrarnshs^waff 
prompted by her jailers to attribute It 
t6 an accidental fall. However this

Medical Mission, who examined her 
some weeks rafter her arrest, discover-

shoulder, a number of more or li?ss 
regular lacerations and abrasions on 
l)oth forearms, which had evidently 
been caused by the ropes. None of 
these wounds, Jjpwever, were of a char- 
acter which would hot yield to anti- 
septic treatment. The palm.s of her 
hands bore none of the marks which 
are characteristic of the so-called salt 
torture, but' two fingers of her rlgrht 
hand are partially paralyzed, presum-

the ropes had been bound. No trace of 
other injuries was discovered.

Great increase of- P^^pulation 
in Empire Duiiiig the Past 
Forty Years — Emigration 

BfiRt^IN, AUff. aV— A 'remarkable 
proof of the prosperity of Germany 
under its protective policy is the dim- 
inution in the number of emigianta. 
Thirty years ago 200,000 Germans left 
'their country every year, now the an- 
nual number of emigrants is approxi- 
mately 20,000. ' " . 

Official statistics — show that the 
I)opulation of Germany already nnrh- 
bers 64,750,000, and at the present 
rate of increase the population will be 
tully 65,000,000 when tho next census 
In t a k e n o n December — L — 'Xh» — ltt=L 

crease of Germany's population for 
some time past has been approximate- 
ly one million per annum. 
_FGrty years ago France and Gftr- 
many had almost equal , populations— 
10,000,000 In -each case. Now Germany 
has Gy,000,o6o. and France only 3^,- 
000,000, and the effect If this change 
on the political ana military situation 
in Europe is evident. 

The remarkable growth of German 
population is continuing in spite of 
the reduction of the birth-rate, from 
forty-two per 1,000 in 1.875 to thirty- 
three per 1.000 in 1908. The cohtrl- 

death-rate from twenty-aeven per

made the familiar call. The edges of

Three minutes passed, but no car ap- 
peared. Tlje unsophisticated urchin 
then happened to repeat tlie blast, re-

■ 'PAllliS, Aug. 27. -Tl,,. JudKe of the

to decide a very curious affair. A few 
days ago a rlc^i lady iivi'ii; ;,i hUstmin'is, 
near Paris, came Into the ■ i. i . draw a 
sum of money from ber laniv After 
she had received paymoiu shr \ Hiked to 
thO Vauglrard quarter to visit her par- 
^TrfBT'and, an her way, thinking a riiistako 
had been made, stopped to count the 
riioney, which she had placed in a small 
bag. y • • ■; 

During, her count a droppe'd note for- 
J'JOO which was carried away by the 
v.ind. A goat herd, who was passing 
with a number of she-goats, picked 
ui> the- note, and was about to give it 
to the lady, who had run towards him; 
when one-of the animals &hatched the 
.precious paper from his hand, and 
before the ' man could interfere,, had 
eaten It. ' 

The lady accused the goatherd of 
having given the note to the animal 
and a policeman who was~ca41ed, toolc 
the fbur-footed thief and the goatherd 
before the commissary of police. The 
magistrate, found himself . In a dlffl- 
<;ulty, for, as -he pointed out, he had 
no jail -In' which to keep the an-lmal. 

To prove his honesty, the goatherd 
offered to sacriflce the offending goat. 
and the animal wa.ii taken to the Vau- 
glrard abattoir and" killed. The bank- 
not^ was found in bits, but as the 
number is still decipherable, the lady 
will he able to recover the money. 

The goatherd, having demonstrated 
his honesty, de^napded that the lady 
should pay for the goat. This she re- 
fused to do and the man has applied 
t o the judge to settle the question.

in Canada today staiubs, as she and tlie .MolhcP 
Church ha\e e\rr stood since llie (la\sc)f Wes- 
ley, for the utmost freedom to think and let 
think, while she lives to make scriptural holi- 
ness prevail in the world. 

That every great spiritual revivalof the 
pa^t has been preceded by a great intellectual 
revival, is the lesson of history the Church has 
need to lay to heart today. 

Temptations W Manhood 
In reiply to your courteous note : 
\ I. Frqm the viewpoint of the Church, the 
greatest danger of the West is the deteriora-. 
tion of its manhood through the temptations to 
mammoniSm and- piagan selfishness, incident 
upon its phenomenal development and the ra- 
pid accumulation of wealth. Its greatcjit 
ne.ed, therefore, is the saturating of its ideals 
ivith the spirh of Jesus Christ and the philan- 
thropy of God. 

2. The most inipor'tant results of the pre- 
sent General Conference, in my judgment, will 
be: More autonomy in the West in the man- 
agement of domestic missions, and the* pro- 
visi<in for oversight and leadership in the ap- 
poinTmcnt arid location in the West of a gen- 
eral su]K'rintendcnt ; better co-ordination and 
consolidation of mission wot'k, domestic and 
foreign, under strategic legislation for leader- 
ship and advance over the whole field ; allaiing 
of th e unrest a mong thw^ Methodist people 
caused by .suspicion of the soundness of the 
doctrinal teaching in some of our theological 
colleges : emphatic testimony as to the essen- 
■ tial uhity of the Church of Jesus Christ, whe- 
ther at not an organic tiniofr~1^)e consum- 
mated between the three of its branches now 
in fra ternal negotiation to that^end.„ ;_ - 

Need General Superintendent ,• 

Dear Sir :— in. answer t(j your favor of the 
20th inst., re the following questions 1-3 

(I). "What, in youf opinion, is the great 
need ^f the West today from the s^andjToiirt of 
the Church? 

(J). "W'h^it, in your opinion, are likely to 
be the most important results of the present 

Regarding the first question. 1 think you 
need a general superintendent to reside in 
yopr micTst to bring before your people the ab- 
solute necessity that in' your nation building 
yoit shouldlay yoiif foundations in' righteous- 
ness, which aldlre constitiUes true greatness. 
Then 1 think. you need a church paper to give 
v^ice antl- direction to the thought and aspira- 
tions of the rtiasscs. 

Re the .second questioti. It seems to me 
that 'Church Union stands out alone as the 
' great issue of .the hour. The adoption of this 
policy would secure efficiency, economy, in a 
word, the ui1^"fica'tion! the Christian force.s 
of the three bodies cotlcerned, and thus, pre- 
sent a powerful and attractive force for the 
building, up of the king'dora of our Lord, and 
feaviour. Jesus Clii'i'*^' -

The tenet is that, the number seven has had 
fr<)m reniotc antiquity a sacred and mystic sig- 
nificance above all other numbers. Especially 
has thi.s been true among Oriental races. 

It had a. prominent |)lace in the Jewish 

ritual. The scv enth dayrof the Week was made 

-a <iay of rest, the Sabbath. Tliv -rventh week 

- of the year was honored as tho harvest^feast, or 

feast of weeks, the "Pentecost (Greek, pentc- 

. koste.. fiftieth I,; so-called becan>e it >.ieeurre<l 

on the fiftieth day of the Pass+iver, from vyhich 

it was separated by a week of weeks, seven 

times seven, or forty-nine. days. 

Every seventh month had its fe«<tival. ^he 
least 'of the taliernadcs. .yvjiich la-ted seven- 
days, v Every seventh year vv;i^ .a Sabbatieal 
year, during "'which the land was lo lie fallow ; 
and after seven weeks of years, for Torty-nine 
years, the fiftieth year was celej.)rated a.- tlu: 
year of jubilee.' 

Including seventh and sevenfold, the nnni- 
...ber seven is .said to occur , in the Bible three 
hundred and eighty-three times; while six aiid 
eight together d<» ntit 'a|)pcar half as many 
times.~ Thus, in' the Old Testament, Noali 
takes the clean birds and beastis into the ark 
by sevetis ; a pause of seven. days occurs before 
the rain begiijs ; the dove is sent out at inter- 
vals of seved days; the ark rests on .Yrarat in 
the seventh month, and Pharaos ducams of 
seven fat and seven* lean kiner indicating aB 
many vcai- of ple.nty, and of fanTtne>. And so 
it came to peuss, , 

At the siege of Jericho, J<»shua and his army 
compass the walls se.ven times before they fall.. 

"Seven times a <lay," says the Psalmist, "^V^ 
I praise thee because of thy righteous judg- 
ments," a text which furnushcS' the authority 
for the *Sevcn Canonical lltnirs of 'devotion : 
prima ( prime ) , matutina, ( ma4in ) , tcrtia,- sexta. 
noha (noon), vcspera (vesper), and complcta 
(complin I. 

Still niore deepdy imbucjd with ,,se|)tenaiy 
mysticism, is the apocalypse of the New. Testa- 
ment, in vvh,ich we read of seven churches, an- 
gels, spirits, thrones, kings, heads, crowns, 
stars, seals, plagues, vials, beasts, niountains, 
tlTomders candlesticks, etc. 

Though not quite" so prominent in classical 
literature, majiy, familiar instances of (he use of 
seven suggest themselves, as the Seven ^i^ainst 
Thebes, atid their>even squs, the Epigohi ; the 

In art, we have the Seven Jovs of the Vir- 
"gin (.Annunciation, yi;^tati(.iH. Atloration of the 
Magi, Presentation i-n the Tcmi)lc, Christ Dis- 
puliiig ■with the Doctfir.s, Assumption, Corona- 
tion); and the Seven, ^sorrows of the Virgin 
(Prophecy of Simeon, Flight into Egypt, Christ 
Lost by His-Molliex, Betrayal of Christ, Cruci- 
fixioii. Deposition from Cross, Ascension), in 
later art. David Tehier.s, the younger, has given 
us the Seven Works of Mercy, a n oted pic ture 
now in the J.ouv re. 

Many attem|)ts have been made to explain- 
the almttst universal .sacrcdness of seven. Phihi, 
the learned Hellcjiistic Jeyv. of Alexandria, 
wrote a treatise on the number, in which he en- 
deavored to show that it is derived from cer- 
taiTTfiiathemalical jjeculiarities ; Init its ])roper- 
tles though singylar in many rcs]>ects. arc not 
'obvious to the vulgar, and arc more likely the 
result of efforts to find something remarkable 
in the number. 

' Later writ e i *** tiac e it to the early tlivision 

of time into seven days, suggested by the 

changes of the moon. Still others discover a 

"^ysiological rea.son for its veneration, deriving 

it from the seven parts of the huma n body, the 

head, loin^. and f(nir limbs; or, from the 
seven openings in the head. But most modern 
scholars trace it with much greater probability 
to an astronomicah origin. 

To the m*'n of priinitive times nothing was^ 
more imjiressivc than the nocturnal heavens, 
whose star-spangled vault must have been a 
never-ceasing wonder: Of interest to them 
w.erc the seven never-setting stars of L'rfea 
•Major, in whcih the Greeks Saw the Great 
Northern l>ear. anil -the Romans the seplen- 
trieines. the sev en-,plow-oxen. 

Another seven Were the stars fortiposing 
I'rsa Minor, of which Polaris, the pole star, so 
important in prirfiitive navigatirm. fe»rmcd one; 
another, the seven daughters of \tl.i< and 
Pleione. the Pleiades; and still, another, their 
sisters, the Ilyades. But more interestitig, and 
of far more importance in the growth of priip- 
itive mythology, were the .s£\:en great planets,' 
then believed to make their nightly journeys 
around the earth, the accepted centre of the 
universe. "" 

The Chahlcan and Babylo'iian astronomer^,' 
long familiar with the planet^ and their orbits, 
assigned them positions in relation to the earth, 
and distinguished them by colors, and these 
po.sitions and_£uiii£a_jycrc reproduced in various 
important structures. Thus, th^^ great temple 
.of Nebo.'at Borsippa, a suburb of Babylon, 
called byllerodotus, Teiwple of Bel. and sup- 
posed In, be identical with he Towel of Babel, 
of the Bible, was built in seven storeys, repre- 
senting the planets, called the "seven spheres 
of heaven and earth, "and each of a distinctive, 
ceilur. The lowest, representing the moon, was 
silver; the second. .Mercury, dark, blue ; the' 
third, \enits, pale yellow ;-thc fourth, the sun, 
gold; the fifth. Mars, rose-red: the sixth, Jupi- 
ter. saiuUl-red the seventh. Saturn, black. 
_ The reasons \or this sej)tenary division were 
theological as vvell* as astronofliical, for the 
ChaldeaiKs' early developed a theogony founded' 
on.the. powcrfiMif nature, and espeicially on the 
heavenly bodies. The sun, the moon, the plan- 
ets, the stars, assumeil distinct personalities 
..and became gods. .Thc' earliest symbed of a

The universe .was filled with spirits, good 
and bad. generally classed in groups of seven. 
Thus, we have the seven gods of the vast heav- 
en>. the sev en' .^ods of the great earth, •the seven 
go(h of the igneous spheres, the seven gods of 
tlie celestial legions, etc. In the cuneiform tab- 
\v\> are iiripieiit invocations (if seven spirits, 

g r lir bad, as in the "Song' of the Seven, 

Si)irits."' which begins.: . ' ' 

"They are seven, they arescven-." 

Sc^en evil spirits often enter into ii man, as 
in the N^vy Testament (MattJiew, xii., 45 ». 
Thus, a tablet reads; ■ ' 

•'Tlu' ^od . . shall stand by his bedside^ vi(.\ en si)irits he shall root out and expel 
front his body. 
, ,\nd tho.'^e seven shall never return to the sick

The hero of one 'of those everyday incidents 
that so"'often go unrecorded appeared at Bow 
street yesterday in the persori of Police Con- 
stable Arthur Chambers, 233, T, who received 
from Mr. .Marsham a check for ,£10 as a re- 
ward, for an act of conspicuous bravery. On 
the ijiorijirig of June ^6 a man ,nanied Thomas

wh\ difl it come al)oUt that'^the two men were 
thinking of- Jones., whom they had not seen in ' 
a long time, just a.!^ he-appearcd-.^-m the scene .' 

The .problem has often presented it.self to all 
of us, and the sur\ ival of the. saying "Speak 
of the devil." etc.. through all the years, iii<li- 
cates that tlie same question als(y confronted 
our ancestors in their everyday life. The fre- 
quency with which the problem occurs to you, 
t6 me and. to our neighbors should J)e suffi 
cient rebuttal to the per.son who dismisses the 
matter with thc phrase "A mere coincidence." 

In almost every phase of daily fife- there 
arises seune problen.i of psychology that we, fail, 
to regard as such. H, we stop to think T»f the, 
peculiar, incident at all. the great majority of us 
are content to forget the odd occurrencerunder ■ 
the , sceptical impression that tliey vyere "acci- 
dents." And maybe they were- and are, chance 
resuTts or accidents— m'aybe and maybe not. 
, That .remains for "^^'"ic psychology student to_ 


. It fre<iuently - hapitens that two persons. 
after a convcri^atipn on general topics, will 
lapse into 5iiencc for a while. Then one will 
auk the other how he liked a certain play— 
fyrobably one he saw several weefcsbxrfore. The 
person "questioned will smile and say: "By 
George, that's funny. .1 was thinking of that 
f)lay when you spoiie." . 

What is" the psychological explanation of 
this common occurrence?' You recognize it as 
a personal cxpeirience. don't you? Neither per- 
soTThad been" .speaking of play.s. (oV whatever 
thc topic may have been in your case.') : neither, 
in fact, may'have thought about thc matter at 
all until thc arrival of the psychological mo- 
ment, wheti both happened to think of thc 
same thing at tlte-i^ame lime. In many hi- 
stances, the topic x)f "which two persons are 
thinking- »t the; , same 'mom errtr may interest 
neither of them niore than a hundred and, one _ 
other topics- and it often happens that the topic , 
in mie^tioii has be(?n 'merely' a conversational

Mr. Standish was mad when he w^ent into 
thc millinery establi.shment and thc longer he 
staved the madder he got. Presently he Walk 
ed over to a stunning black creation that hunp 
on a peg near the window and said: 

"This is the haj 1 want to .<ee \T>tt about." 

The propri^or came forward. 

•'What can I do for you?" he asked. 

"You can fix this hat ov^r the way my wife 
asked vou to." said Standish. explosively. "She 
wants the feather put on the other side that 
bow moved to the front, and she wants the rim 
to bulge a little more over the temples " ■ 

Seeing a guilty flush creep over the pro- 
prietor's face, Standish went on with increased 
licat:. ■ : 

"She says you have refused to make any al- 
terations on the ground that a stitch added to 
or subtracteil from the hat i.s bound4o ruin it. 
)nit 1 teli you that's all nonsense. My wiie 
knows how she wants her hat to look, and ii 
can't stajid itp for her rights,' I'll do it for her, 
.She is coming around this afternoon te. try the 
liat on again. If it i'sn;t ready by that time there 
will be no end of a row," - 

The prO^jrietor twirlfed the black hat on hi.s 
forefinger and looked from it to thc hea<l sales- 
vvoman lugubriously. 

. 'i rerhembcr," he said, "that-the laily who 
ordered that hat did bring it back yesterday to 
be remodelled. .Perhaps it will be possible to 
make the alterations suia^gested. aftcf all. " 

The manager's humiHty made Standish feel 
\ erv proud of himself. 

"That's the only wSy to deal with those fel- 
lowsi',* he said when hc'left thc shop. "You've 
got to. nicet them on their own leWl. ft takes 
a man to do that. No" wonder , women get 
cheated Joiit of their very eyerteeth. They 
.haven't got sand chough to .say the things that 
have to l)c said to secure their rigfhts." 

Throughout the day Standish continued to

which kindly nature had endowed him. and 
thiS' quality uf being able to find a droll side, to 
even the most 'tragie»ev-ent heljjed him to pas.s

we can afford to smile at painful vicissitudes 
when they do not cause the suffering of those

the trial of having a wife and children to en- 
dure poverty with Inm. So ail of hi^i-troables 
affected him but little, and tq the last day 01 
his life his fund of good Imjnor never failed

\er<e-makipg after the fir.-t few efforts. 

. FJefore giving a brief resume <jf his dra- 
matic works we will glance back at the |)eriod 
during, which Holberg lived. 

He was born in 1684. at a time when the 
Reformation had le-ft its impre-- on the liter- 
atiirc of Scandinavia, making it for the mo-t 
.part theological and politieal. and .jJuaiUiitf^dtic- 
t-ixe of inspiration— Bergen ill Xorway was 
the dramatist's birthplace ; he was the young- 
est' of twelve children, anrl. left an orphan at 
.the ag-c of ten. There was insufficient monc\ 
to give the boy the education he desired, and 
after going to school in ISergen. and after- 
wards in Copenhagen, he returned to 'Norway 
and taught in a crergym.a.irs family to secure 
the necessary funds for a university career. 
We are told that while working as a teacher 
he wa- often called to take the clergyman's 
))lacc in the fitilpit when hi^ employer was 
awa\' or ill. and that he cliat-med the congre- 
gation, particularly the , \ oiin^er |>ortioii. Im 
the brevity r)f his discourses. Hq finally at- 
tended the rnivensity at Copenhagen and sue- 
cceried in passing liis examinations \er\ eredi'

In- V,f an intellectuai actn ity which had a- it- 
in.spjration the works of such-i'ncn as Descartes 
and B' Newton and l^ocke. Leibnitz and 
I 'uffendorf, Spinoza and Crotius, Rabelais and 
Montaigne.' Of these gi:eai men Holberg 
heard for the first tjme. when lie made his first 
journey abroad. iJis eye- were o])cnpd to the 
wonderful advance in science and philosophv , 
and he determined^to make his first journey 
only the beginnin|V of a s'eric.'s, for the purpose 
oX gaining fiirtlier knowle<tge of the progress 
the rest of the world was making, and cn^ 
dea\oring so far as in him lay to carry the en- 
_lighicnment honie to the ■.North. 

From 1705 to 1707 Holberg spent in Ivng- 
lamTat Oxford, wtvere, ambng many friends 
made, while theret he numbered Addi«;oii. 
whose influence sortie critics affirm can be 
rcadilv traced in the, dramatij^t's works. Re- 
turning to tllC North/lic went to Copenha,gen, 
where lie determined to make his future home; 
and Norway never saw him again. 

There fqllowed aome years .spent in travel

but till- of plays put on the boards did net 
suit ihc la.ste of His Mi'jesty in the iCaSt;. 
they Were sadly lacking in originality and wit, 
and it Was .suggested, to Holberg that he essay 
to write a comedy. .. I lolberg'.s response was 
to. write five comedies, which were immedi-„ 
ately .staged and ha^iled with delight by all 
theatre-goers. /These- five were followed by 
twenty-eight others, and among thein all. 
though they wertre wriltcn within -4. period of. 
five years*, it wfiu'ld be impo.ssible' to .choose 
one more perfect tha}i the rest in technical ftu; 
ish, Wealth of humor, and charm pf.4aventiom 

All ..sorts of themes w^cre treated by Hol- 
berg, from th& romances of the Trojan war, to 
thcproblcms of his own tim«s. And eacrh play 
was, an almost perfect production.^ TTe de- 
served the fame which immediately canle ti» . 
him, and which has known little diminution 
for over two hundred years. 

Besides hi.s comedies,, the conijiosiiion of 
which, after all, took up but-a brief time in his 
life, he has written excellent historical matter, 
ethical treatises, romances and philosophical 
essays. ^ . > 

He die<l in 1754, Baron Holberg, the title 
having been conferred on him some time dur- 
ing the last ten years of hisjife. His estate he 
bequeathed fur the endowment of a college in 
connection with the Ini versify which, he had 
served so long and honorably.

ritoriaih-. Had his coun.sels prevaded, Eng- 
land would not have lost her .American Col- 
onies. He was not b}' aUy means a favorite 
with the King, who oppo.sed his entrance into 
the ministry as long as he could, and when 
forced to give way at las.t, ejaculated that his ■ 
minister liad become king. But if George was 
obliged to receive Pitt, he was yet able to 
make thi,ngs exceedingly unpleasant for him, 
and the result was the overthrow of the Dev- 
onshire administration, of which Pitt was a 
member, and for eleven weeks the country was 
without a government. During that period 
the peopl* everywhere' testified their confi- 
<lence in Pitt. So many cities presented him " 
with their freedom that 6ne speaker—vvittily 
remarked that "it rained gold boxes'." .Xt this 
time the DiiTcc of ?Ce wcastle was in' control of 
the majority of the Hbuse of Commons; having 
secured it.s support by the most un.scrupulous 
system of corruption ever know'n in Great 
J'.ritain. He was. how- ever, of no ability as an 
admini.stfator. apd through the intervention of 
'Lord Chesterfield, aii arrangement was made 
whereby Newcas,tle becalne nominally Premier^ 
with Pitt leader of the House of Commons, 
r^itt at once as.serted himself. , Leaving the 
patronage wholly in the hands of Newcastle, 
h.c assumed the real headship of ^he ministry, 
and' for the itext four years was absolutely dic- 
tator of British policy. Goldwin Sniith. de- 
scribing; this period of his career says :, 

"The House of Commons bo\vs. almo'^t 
cringes, to his personal ascendency, sustained 
by the oratoricffire, of which only a few flakes 
remain. His will is done, and all money which 
his vastly expensive pqlicy demands is voted 
without a word. He had boasted that he alone 
could save the country. War was his panacea ; 
he avowed himself a lover .of honorable war. 
His grand aiip was to humble ?'rancj?, strip 
her of her colonies, and destroy her commerce, 
thereby, as he and the traders of that day be- 
lieved, makiijg British Commerce flouVish. lli.s 
policy was th^us the opposite of Walpole. Of 
economy and finaricF he was alike ignorant 
andregardles^. H^. was the greatest of war 
iViinisters, Hciihad the eye to discern merit in 
tne services and to promote it over the head of 
seniority and ifi defiance of' routiiie. He in- 
fused his own |pirit into all. It was in Jiawke, 
when, on a stormy sea and on a dangerous 
tjoast, he replied t^. the sailinjg-mastcr, who had 
jvarncd hitn of the peril, '\'ou have done your 
riuty in warnit^g me: now lay me alongside the 
/French adminal.' It was in \Yolfe when he. 
[scaled, the plecipiee of Quebec. X' one. it 
was said, ever entered Chatham's cloisct with- 
out coming out of it a braver man." Of his 
personal character, it is said that it was. a 
strangp compc^und of greatness and littleness. 
He was intensely egotistical and waywfard, 
while his* arrogance was at times insufferable. 
Before, t-he King he aped a humility thX he- 
did not feel. Itiused Co be said of him that at 
a levee he bowed so Ipw that those behind him 
could 5ce /his nose between his legs. His man- 
ner was Jntensfely. theatrical. Hejoved show,

ami retained the carbon; and when they died 
the carbon became mixed with the rock-dust, 
also w'iththe~athej_4?lements which the jdant 
finds somewhere. It is wonderful how plant.% 
discover what they need. Onions contain sul- 
phur, and an experiment was once tried of 
growing an onion in soil in which there was no 
sulphur, but the onion contained this eleiiient 
just the same. So We do not know where 
plants get all fHe" elements of which they arc 
compo.sed ; but we do know thaj countless gen- 
erations of plants have been getting these di- 
verse elements from .some source and leaving 
them with the cairbon and other elements in the 
Tock-dust to form fertile soil, .such as produces 
in perfection food for mankind. There Ls noth- 
ing anything like as -wonderful a- ilie silent 
processes of nature^ that are going on around 
us every day. 

We are apt to think of the sea as the realm 
of death, and doubtless it is So to some extent, 
but death is everywhere present on land. Men 
and all the myriads of animal life die. 'flic air 
is pointed with lioxious odors. The fe>,rests die 
and their decay sincUs rank to hea\ en. If this 
continued without relief foi .1 i)rolonged peri- 
od, the world would become unfit for habita- 
tion. Men and animals wouKl die. poisoned by 
the vilencss of the air they were compelled to 
breathe, and all animal and \egetable life 
would become converted into a seething mass 
of crawling rottenness. But Nature has her 
own methods. She sends the lain and washes 
the land clean: the debris is carried oui to sea. 
and Mother Ocean in her depths undertake- 
to pfirify it all. If yon think fPr a little yoii 
will realize that all manner of vilencss must 
find its Way to the sea, and yet (here is noth* 
itig so perfectly fresh and clean as the "wind 
that .comes in over the blue water. Do not 
mistake the smell of the seaweed for. the smell 
of the sea. The sea itself has no odor. The air 
that sweeps across it brings only i)urity in its 
bosom. Inhere are mysteries of the sea that 
We cannot hope to fathom. No One ha.s ever, 
read the stor^- of its depths. W't: do not know 
if the tid§s which affect its surface, or the cur-' 
rents whl9li wind their way across its bosom, 
disturb the lowest depths, those great cavern.s 
where some sailor-folk say the great octoi)us 
li.ves, upon which the sperm whale feeds — the 
leviathan , that old. Hebrew traditions say is 
buried in the .water.s. "But we do know "that 
the sea is the gieat purifier, working vsilently 
day- and nlight to keep the world fit to live in. 

Did yoit ever think of the resistlessness 01 
life, not of the. life of men and the great creat- 
ures of the animal world, but of the tender life 
of vegetation? The rootlets oi__tbe ivy are 
slower in their process jthan the cannon-balls 
of an enemy, but they destroy more surely the 
ca-stle Upon which th<;y fix themselves. .\ 
guard-Uke plant will pile one cellTTpon another,

the cross of the African stiibble-berry (Sola-

The registry begins in 1873, when Mr. Bur- 
bank, then 24, answered the demand for a po- 
tato which should yield 200 bushels to the acre, 
with the famous' seedling" from the "Early 
Rose" (itself from seed of a garnet Chili plant) 
whicl^at once^gave a yield of 435 bushels, and 
has since-produced 525 bushels. With its pro- 
ceeds, $125, ]\Ir. Burbank arrived in Santa 
Rosa-, California, in October, 1875. Five years 
of severe ordeal, poverty, starvation, discour- 
agement well-nigh fatal, awaited him. At last 
he was able to buy four acres of the soil for

"In 1880 I began paying especial attention 
' to the' Ruhus' family. I had in my collection of 
blackberries and raspberries nearly all the 
popular varieties. In 1883, I. began crossing. 
In 1884, I had„ahQUt 60 hybrids, the first ever 
produced. The next season more extensive 
trials were made with many new subjects." 
(He noTv possessed 10 acres, home^ land.) 
"From hvbrid seeds of the third generation, I 
obtained' black, red and yellow raspberries, 
white, black, red ' and pink blackberries, in 
every possible combination of sizes, colors, 
qualities and flavors. Many were totally bar- 
ren, some with long, trailing vines ; some stiff 
and upright as a'ciirrant 4jush ; s6me thorny, 
others as fjiee from thorns as currants'; still 
others producing leaves, flowers and fruit per- 
Theii there were Qthers growing in- 

other varieties under numbers as received from 
his coUectoi-s. The last -fpur of these were 
named by \\ ]. Berckmans of Augusta, Ga., 
Ijresideili of the American I'omological So

high: But from all thpse were presented, more 
radical improvements in blackberries and rasp- 
berries than had been obtained for cijrhteen 
^enturies.""- . ' 

Thc.list of the main species incorporated to 
establish these hybrids is too long to print. The 
photographs of the leaves of different . individu- 
als show remarkable variations and eccentri- 
citv, a fe\y offering but a single leaf, or leaves, 
as 'reticulate as ferns; many profuse and palm- 
ate. The results in thtir entirety made the 
scientific botanists'- barriers between species 
and varieties, to use the audacious horticultur- 
ists' wOrd, "Wobble." 

Eighteen hundred and . eighty-four \ wit- 
nessed the announcement of -the the "Japanese- 
Golden Mayberry," and the "Primus." The 
distinction of the former was" that it led far in 
advance the berry season, the earliest rasp- 
berry known, ripe while yet the standards were 
well-nigh dormant. It was a blend of the 
Cuthbert \vith a diminutive variety of Rubus 
palmatus: characterized by Mr. Burbank as 
"one of the most worthless, tastelessT dingy, 
' yellow berries I- have ever seen." The new 
fruit is large, sweet, glossy, semi-translucent, 
growing on bushes resembling -trees, six to 
eight feet high. The Primus is now grown ex- 
tensively in semi-fropical climates, thriving 
especially in the Philippines. It ripens a 
month ^before either of its parents, the wild 
dewberry (Rubus. ursinus) and the Siberian 
(X Rubus cratoegifol ius). I t produces a large 
and perfectly black ixint in abundance, a dis- 
tinct new race of the garden berry. The seed- 
ling-s of this pioneer have taken their places as 
standards in various localities. 
• . In 1886 -the experiments had become more 
extensive. He was crossing theSatsuma^ and 
other Japanese plums with the'Ea-stern, Euro- 
pean and California, Nevada and Oregon na-. 
tiv:es, many of which, in size and clustering 
growth are grapes rather than plums. "Some 
of them are of v^ry little value." remarked Mr. 
Burbank. "having an unpleasantly bitter taste, 
reminding one of the Eastern (^ranberry.'" The 
famous walnut hybrids are now under;^ulture. 
But, important as these successes were, 
they were only in a' way by -products. Mr- Bur- 
baiik's main Ijusiness had been to entrench and 
establish himself. To this end, he had built 


gonia-leaved squash and the cross-bred toma- 
toes. The flower lists include half a dozen 
new rases and as many more call as and lilies', 
the "Silver-Lining" poppy, a new iriyrtle; hy- 
brid clematis; hybrid nieotianas, and a new

abundantly. We have never seen plants seed, 
so freely; they .sow themselves, as already 
stated, and in this w"ay the variety in form and

in the summer. 

Propagating the Pink 
A correspondent writes: "One of the most 
yvrized of garden flowers is the double-flowered 
pink, and it is one which almost every amateur 
delights to have in quantity, whether for edg- 
ings or for beds. Too frequently the planfs 
are permitted to growjnto a large tuft or. bor- 
dering, and only' wJjen they become raggetl is 
any attempt made to produce a neater or more 
vigorous group. Those who woiild increase 
their quantity of pia,nts and jjmprove their vigor 
also should make a start at, once by putting in 
a batch of cuttings. The florists usually rely 
upon what are termed "pipings, "i .e.. the points 
of the shoots about three inches lone and pulled 
out by a .sharp upward movement. These makt* 
excellent plants. , Quite as good a wav,.or pos. 
.sibly a better one f(>r the arnatcur. is to take 
some cuttings;' by the "heel," selecting the 
young shoots of the present year.niid stripoing 
them from the main stem with the "heel" at- 
tached. Plenty, of cuttings of this character 
are available as spon as the .flowering is over, 
and those four inches will do well. By insert- 
ing these cuttings in a cold frame in sandy soil 
:,they form roots in abput a month, and.- make 
compact Utile plants for going to their per- 
. . " manent quarters in eSrlv autumn. These 

liance of fruit growers. Appear akso this year fre-shly-rooted plants are sirpcrior in every way 

foliage is attractive even without the flowers. 
Seed may be sovyn in spriiig, hut, as mentioned 
it 'sows itself; such seedlings seem stronger 
than those soWn in the ordinary way. 

A Giant Jj^eakale.— ,We wish plants of the 
charactef of the giant seakale (Cranibe cordi- 
folia) were more planted in English gardens; 
but they must have ample space to dcveloj) 
their leaves and flower spikes. An" immense 
plant we noticed recently in bloom; it was 
about 6 ft. in height, and the wavy leaves were 
fujly 18 ins. across and almost hidden by the 
cloud of flowers, which spread out and then 
fall over,, a veil of the purest white. It is a 
plant for the wild garden or fringe of wood- 
land, and is a success in shade. Any soil seems 
to suit it, and if an. increase of stock is desired 
this is best accomplished by dividing-the roots 
when growth begins in spring.— Country Life.

It pays ix) go through the orchard and thin 
out overloaded trees, more ' especially young 
ones. To allow a fruit tree to bear excessivcl> 
one year is almost certain to result in little or 
no- yield from it the next. The second year 
after, having recovered its vigor, it wi|l, in all 
probability, again- bear to excess. Thus; the 
habit of alternate bearing, to which many var- 
ieties are prechsposed, becomes establishecl, or 
confirmed' in young 4<=€es. One year it bears 
so heavily that the specimens are inferior. The 
next -it bears scarcely anything. The,; most 
Vexiatious feature about it is that the "ofiLi-year" 
is liable to be one of scarcity and high prices.

There is no kind of poultry' so easy -for the. 
^farmer's wife to raise as geese, tor they re- 
uuire so little care after they are hatched. 

But it is generally understood that men 
do not like geese because they talk so mUch — 
geese are like women, they will have thedast 
wor<l. and when you call dinner-they are sure 
to answer. But I do not feel annoyed by 
them, because I like to raise them, and will tell 
you my method for raising and cariUg for the 
. young goslins. For good results you must 
have good breeding stock. The gander should 
be two years o)d, mated witli. two geese not, 
younger than two-^ears old. They can be six 
years old and have good results, for the older 
the geese are better breeders they make; but 
the ganders are not profitable to ke^p, wdien 
they are over five years old. Care should Ije ' 
taken and not let them get too fat during the 
winter, for, if they are. the eggs will not be fer- 
tile. They do not require a very warm place- 
in fact, they do a little better to shift for. them- - 
■ selves a greater part' of the tinle. I turn mine 
out in the yard with the stock, and they are 
in better condition for use in the spring, and 
] have better luck' w'ith my goslins. They 
should begin to lay in the middle of Marclf. If 
1 wish the geese to keep on laying I set the 
eggs under hens, but set the„goG»se at the same 
-time if i wish, but if not,' I raise them nicely 
with the hen; then they can be made to lay 
two or three litters of eggs. I know of forty 
goslins being raised from two geese last /year.' 
Thev were pastured like cattle and were very 
little trouble to the owner after starting them 
tm growing. When the goslin hatch leave them 
in the nest until sti-ong. - If the heu' is kind 
and not; tl>ey do much getter than to 
take tliem, out of the nest and wrap them up in 
flannel, but I have taken them out of the nest 
and had good success with .them. I once 
owned' a goose that when she wa.s hatching 
waiiild sit down on her eggs, until the goslins 
wcre^aken out of her nest, then she sat quietly 
until more hatched. When the goslins were 
all out and are strong, if it is warm and dry, l 
take them to a grassy spot, where I have built 
a, yard as runway, and put them h\ a coop, if 
1 put them with a hen; if with the goOs? I put 
her down in the yard, and feed the old gooSci 
but I do not feed the goslins until thirty-si.K 
hours, as the yolk of the egg supplies_all ! the 
nourishment that . i,s needed. 

For the first feed I give them a little oat- 
meal sprinkled on their backs. By .sprinkling 
it on their bad<s I can easily teach them to 
cat. They are very little trouble after that. 1 
keep them in the' yard three- or foiijf days .iml 

turning them into a' .sheltered" place at nitdit. 
and always getting them under covin wlufi.i it 

fru't as \votild be grown if .the Iruit were

in 1908 Commissioner Whipple stated that 
a careful surAjey showed upwards of 4 00 fires 
started. in the Forest Preserve on or imrnedi- 
ately afljaceht to the right-of-way, yo% of 
which were set by thr^njjines. It w&s "sliowti 
that the only Adirondack railway that has 
been free from fire is the Ranette Lake Rail- 
way, which burns oil in suinmer. The only fire 

"^ver caused by this line was started by a coal- 
burning engine hauling a- special train and 
which was used in defiance of the lavv. 

duct Inis^esffea^eid^Jrom 24 thousand tons to 
5'/^ thousand, or tp.a little over one-fifth. In 

. (Jntario, the catch of whitefish— -bur most valu- 
able of fresh water fish- — is only one-half of 

-^¥4iat it was in 1873. The average catch dur- 
ing the yijars i9o6-o() of the Fraser River sock- 
eye salmon has decreased from 375,000 case* 
—the average 1901-05— -to 221,000, 

Fires do not start in the forests of Ger- 
many, alt|iough railways run through them, 
principally because they are free from com- 
hnstible refuse. In Canada, owing to the cost 
of oil fuel, forcing the raHways'^tW'use it would 
be an injustice, birt it is not 'too imich to de- 
marid that they clear the right-of-way and keep 

it dear; that, during the fire season, they 
patrol their tracks, following the trains^ partf=~ 
cularly where the heavy grades necessitate the 
maximum draught, nor that they shrjirtd inake, 
at the end of each divi.sion, rigid inspectioriH'f 
the grates and stack screens. In dry weather 
an engine with a defective grate.or sicreen will 
set scores of fires on each mile of line. 

; Mr;, Bowser, Commissioner of Fisheries, at- 
tHNtes^'fhe decrease to the greater efficiency- 

of the apparatus .used by the .Americans, to the 
fact that their weekly clcwsed period is six hours 
shorter than /nirs, and that, when convicted, 
the fines imposed arc nwch less than the vatuc 
.of the illicit cat4li» He; says that "the in- 
dustry will be destroyed' unless' thfe fish arc 
given the same protection in American waters 
as in ours." 

The important of our fisheries ar6 

either in the high seas or at the international 
waters, such as the Great Lakes. In the latter, 
each state bordering thereon has jurisdiction 

^fr om it s- j diores to the boundary line. Con- 
flicting legislation, and legislation not thor- 
oughly enforced, results in renderhig the regu- 
lations ineffective. The fishery regu!ati(-ins of 
these and all boundary 'water are now in the 
hands ol^ an international commission, and it is 
hoped that much .good will result. 

So far as the oyster fisheries' are concerned, 
oyster culture should be encouraged and de- 
veloped, but it must be preceded by a final de- 
cision respecting the title of the foreshore — 

-whether it is vested in the Dominion or the 

\s for the valuable right of whalebone 

wooded with a virgin forest 01 pine, iJouglas 
fir. spruce, etc., since then sacrificed to man'.s 
cai-elessness and human greed. In British Cb- 
liimbia we find, and particularly on tlie west- 
ern slopes, a magnificent forest growth ; but

~ An educational campaign is necessary to 
impress upon the people that setting a fire that 
ruins thousands of dollars worth of timber is 
just as serious'an offence as .firitig a house or 
barn. The law makes arson a very serious of- 
fence, and 'the laws respecting forest fires 

. should be amended sieia^to make the penalty 
as sc\ ere as in the case of arson. 
Fisheries and Game 
Canatla's fisheries are one, of' the most im- 
portant in the world and the most Varietl in 
their products. The waters of. the Atlantic 
and Pacific coasts teem—with valuable food 
fishes; the salmon of the Fraser and other 
streams of British Columbia have a world- 
wide reputation, and the great inland lakes 
have lotig supported an important industry. 

In quoting statistics, however; it is usual to 
quote \ajues and not weiglits, although t he l a- t - 

~Ier is the only method of comparison that 
woulil imlicate depletion, orrhe reverse, of our 
fisli^ie^ir-Thus, the value of the yield in 188'r 
nearly 16 miUfon flollars, and in 1908 
ariy j-;'^- million; but these figures do not 
disclose the fact that our oyster fisheries have 
decreased from i8<>,i27 barrels in 35,027 
in 1908 — less than one-fifth ; nor do thev in-, 
dicatc that tlie lobster industry has decreased 
from 7,r4o tons canned in i8qi to 5.455 in 
i'>o8. and from 17,418 tons in shell in 1898 to 
40 t(ms in 1908; that is. in ten years; the pro- 

whale, it is nearly extinct ; theJJundee whalers, 
"'Wht) formerly resorted to Davis Strait~aiT(rBaf- 
fin I'ay. have practically abandoned it as un- 
profitable ; one schooner still hunts in, Mud- 
son Bay, but would probably withdraw but for 
the profitable trade, in furs with the Eskimo; 
some vessels 'stiir resort 'to the mouth of the 
Macken?rie Aiver; but; if not prevented hy in- 

ternational agreement, this great mammal wdll, 
in a few year!<. have gone the way of the great 

auk and dodo, ' - - 

It Is unnecessary to lay stress upon the dis- 
appearance (if gaiiTC and the ftir-bcJtring ani- 
mals. .The wild pigeon, that formerly nii_^rated

to permit these animals to increase. In Al- 
gonquin Park, Ontario, prot(?ction has resulted 
in. such great increase of. beaver that the Gov- 
ernment has had to order the killing of 50P, 
aiid it is anticipated that they will be able to 
obtain Ji' consiflcrable revenuC from the annual

Little Tales From Everywhere 

The vvonderful capacity for drink of the 
RhinclandcrsA is amusingly illustrated ' by 
Goethe in his journals. "Tlie Bishop of May ^ 
ence," he says, "once delivered a .sermoii 
against drunkcnnes.s, and. after painting in the 
strongest colors the evils oi oyer-indulgehce, 
concluded as follovys: "But the abitse of wine 
does not exclude i*«.use; fpr it is written that 
wine rejoices the heart of |ttan. I^robably there 
is no one in my congre'gatipn who cannot drink 
four bottles of wine without feeling any dis- 
turbance of his senses; but if any man at the 
seventh or eighth bottle so forgets himself as 
to abuse and strik^ his wife and children, and 
treat his best frieiids as enemies, let him look 
into his conscience, and in futtjre always stop 
at his sixth bpttlc. 7 

■ Yet, if,^^fter drinking*eight, or evef* ten 
or twelve bottles, he can takejijs Cbristian 
neighbor lovingly by the hand, and obey thq 
orders of his spiritual and-temporal superiors, 
let him thankftiUy drink his modest draft. He 
must , be careful, however., as to taking any 
more, for it is seldom that Providence gives 
anyone the special grace to drink sixteen bot- 
tles at a sitting, as it bas enabled me. its un- 
worthy servant, to do, without either ixeglect- 
ing^ my duties or losing my temper.' ' 

Paniathie's toast cam.e next, w'hich wasr 
"Two foreteeth in the ,fire, or twohundr'cd 
pounds on the table," and Panlathie pulled his 
teeth out and. threw them into the fire. 

The English noblemen looked amazed. 
They didn't know he had false teeth' and. Pan- 
lathie went iiome without hat, coat, or boots,, 
but with six hiindred pounds in his-pockctr

the drinking style of the last century. TTlps 
was what Our grandfathers took for humor: 

Two yOitng ICugli.sli nobleuien were paying 
a \isit to JUord Painmurc at Brechin. Castle. 
( )ne day he wrote a letter to Panlathie. a ten-

There is so much written nowadays on the 
probietn of lengthening the human life, that it 
is , worth while recalling the fact that our 
grandfathers shared our interest in this rc- 
•spect. A certain Dr. Fitch, very cclebfatcd in 
his d ay, p ublished a trca,tise on "Consump- 
tion" some hfty years ago that \v.i- widely 
quoted. In it he cites many instances of lont,;- 
evity. \ 

In 1820; a man named Henry Francisco 
died at W hitehall, ..\ew York, aged one hun- 
dred and thirty-four years; he beat the' drum 
at the coronation of Queen Annie, and ,was then 
sixteen -years of 'age ; he did not die of old age, 
but -qi -fever and ague. .John Hightowcr, resid- 
ing in Marengo County, Alabama, died in 
January,' 1845, aged one hundred and thirty-, 
six years. \\ illiam Prigden, of Maryland, died

The Canadian Indian Today ^

Today Sir Cdlicrt i'arker's "Translation of ' 
a Savage" niii^t lake the. place of .some bloo(l-, 
curdling' story >i\ i ndian warfare, oc the hand-. 
some Siciux who come to .\llantic City in the 
season, hawkinj; the barbaric arti.clcs they ■ 
make in exclianj.(c ior Yankee dollars, inci- 
ilcntally afford the Indians' last dLspla.y. In 
Canada, too, it is only on some s.ucl"i. occasion . 
as thai of a local sports day or agricultural 
.Nhow that the Indians issue in festive native 
dress from the nearest Reserve to add a touch 
of somethiniL;' wild and pristine to the'day's at- 
tractions. (Jlherwisc they are nut only out of 
sight, l)ut out of mind of all save the Minister 
of Indian .-\ffairs, add of those responsible un- 
der him for the compilation of the annual Bluc- 
Hook on the subject. ° . . 

.All that the immigrant, for instance, is"tike- 
ly to sec of the red man nowadays is his half- 
breed representative hanging- about with a 
knot of white settlers on the platforms of the 
little stations dotting the track of the great 
transcontinental railways. The Treaty In- 
dians, i.e., those remnants of the once wan- 
dering tribes who have entefred into relation- 
>hip with the Canadian Government, keep very 
generally on their Reserves, to tlie lands set 
apart unde^^ the supervision of a local agent, 
for their exclusive use ami occupation. Here 
they experiment in agriculture, avad them- 
selves marc or less of such advantage.s as 
come to them in the shape of mission.s. schools, 
and hospitals, sigh for the. strictly forbidden 
"fire-water" of the pale faces, and lead inof- 
fensive lives as much in keeping with their" 
primitive traditions as the totally alteretl cc^i- 
ditions of thing* will allow.' This system of 
Indian Reservations also obtains in the United 
States, but in Canada. ' in the Yukon, and 
Xorthw-est Territories, there are still numbers 
of Indians who have not come into the Treaty, 
and who maintain their old nomadic habits, 
and subsist entirely by hunting, trapping and 
fishing. " ■ 

The line of the great Canadian Pacific Rail- 
way strikes the northern .shore of Lake Su- 
perior'! the "Gitchee Gumee," the shining "Big-' 
Sea-Water" of Hiawatlva-V at a point called 
Ilei-on Bay. and runs along it to that city of 
elevators; Fort William, nearly two hundred 
miles further west. Thus it traverses the 
"pleasant land of thc.Ojibways." and no one 
who has not known what it is'to speed onwards 
day after day through the, sun-smitten wilder- 
ness of rocks and pine trees, lakes and rushing 
rivers that stretches all the way from Mont- 
real to Winnipegi can fully understand how ex- 
«|uisitely apt are the metre and the simplicity 
of Longfellow's immontal poem to the very 
spirit of Canadian landscape, to the soul of 
Canadian tiature. For one who has felt the cn- 
chantment/ o>f lis immensity, its loneliness, its 
titanic virginity, Longfellow's use of simple 
adj,ectivcs. of quaint repetition, above all. of 

■poetic Indian names, "Mahng the loon, the 
wild-good Wa-wa,"' has an almost magical 

■ power to recall, "the Muskotlay, the meadow, 
the p.rairie full of blos.soms," with longing so 

•great it homesickness if felt for an- 
other lafid. Hiawatha himseh, however, has 
littlelin common with the "neche" of totlay. 
Nor have the legends of that Song of his, into 
which the poet hais woveh^rnariyii^reminisccncc 
of classic mythology and even of Christian sa-. 
crament. much resemblance to the fables of 
the rnodern remnants of Indian heathenism. 
Hiawatha belongs to .'Vhicrican litera4;ure, but 
not to the Red Indian. - .- - 

It is said that three dates- alone \serve to 
mark Indian history, from the time when the. 
land which originally utiited North America 
to Asia fell throujgh, and oceans rolled .be? 
tween' those fragments. of it left in Baffin's 
l^and, Greenland, Iceland an(l Scandinavia. 
Those tribes of prehistoric men which had al- 
ready migrated thus far west, were then cut 
off from the parent stocks of the East and iso- 
lated. The two great America.s,. North and 
South, .formed an island, and their inhabitants 
were left — till tlfc coming of the white man 
late in historic time — tp their own develop- 
ment. From Hiidson Bay to Terra del Fuego 
the native Americans are one gteat race. 
Those in the South have remained Ijarbaric to 
the present day; ciViliitations have arisen and 
died away in t'he central parts of the contin- 
ent; and for the North it is approximately true 
to say that two dates only, or three, have 
marked Indian time. They are very .recent 
dates, too. The first is that ofthc introduction 
of the horse abo,ut the eighteenth century; the 
second is that of the extermination of the bison 
(luring the winter of 1886-87; and the third, 
surely, is that of the first treaty marde with 
the invading wWtc man. We need assign no 
specific day or year for it, as of eourse the; 
Slates made-, their own. and C&nada made her 
M\..n. and even at ihe present time' the treaty

ductive or to find, work elsttwhere, paid for

Much of all this is due to Mr.. David Laird, 
now Chief "Adviser in the Departfflcnt of In- 
dian -Ajff airs at Ottawa, the first Gevernor of 
the Northwest Territories. " - 

"Never had a public man so large an oppor- 
tunity in directing the destiny of an un- 
known land, for *in 1873 there was practically 
no .Winnipeg, No Kdmonton. nor Calgary. Not 
a mile of railway had been laid on the floor_X)f 
the prairie, and the, wheat-growing possibili- 
ties of the West had not even been discovered. 
Rancher ancl cow-boy were unknown. Brit-, 
ish Columbia was is(dated by a mountain bar- 
rier as belonged to":anothcr continent. It 
was at thi s tim e tha t M r. Laird entered U£on a 
new career of'irsefulness as a iniblicman. One 
of the most pressing probleins faciiig the Min- 
ister of the Interior was the Indian. The ma- 
jority of the hundred thousand Canadian red 
men liv^ west of Lake Superior, and some sys- 
tem was to be encouraged and law and order 
preserved. . It was indeed fortu,nate that it fell 
to tbe lot of a nian of such high character to 
negotiate some .of the principal treaties .with 
the Western tribes. .No more fitting encomi- 
um could be_^paid to Mr. Laird than the reil . 
nien themselves, who, with their unerring i>i- 
sight into, human nature, gave him the flatter- 
ing' name of "The-manrwhose-toiigue-is-not- 
forked !"' In the year 1876 the Niiirthwest Ter- 
ritories were organized, withMr. Laird as their 
first Lieutenant-Governor. BattlcCord bccame_^. 
the Capital of the couirtry ntvw the provinces of 
Saskatchewan and .Mbertarand from the execu- 
tive mansion of this then' isolated centre the 
Government of Cahada exerciseil "a more dii-ect 
sway over both white and red men and half- 
breeii;? than had liefore been possible. 

"Duringthe succeeding years Mr. Laird, in 
his positions of Ljieutenant-Govcnior and Su- 
perintendent of Indian .\ffairs, wa-- in constant 
contact with the Indians. .Depuialioiis of the 
'dusky sons of the i)lains were frequently en- 
campe^l on the Battleft^rd outskirts, and there 
and at other )x:)ints in the Territories he ^net 
with the great Indian leaders, such as Crow- 
looi, thefamoMS chief of the Blackff>t>t nation, 
ja man of remarkable ifative genius, for gov- 
, ernrnent. On n,umerous occasions the' tall 
chief, for Mr. Laird exceeds a six-foot stature, 
- smoked the pipe of peace with his bronze broth- 
ers. It was in 1877 that Treaty ^^^- 7 ^^''^ *-■*'■"" 
cUuled With the Assiniboines and Blackfcct — 
the most powerful of all the prairie tribes. L'n- 
der it and previtnis treaties the vyhole <>f the 
country from Lake Winnipeg to the Rocky 
Mountains and north 1o the ~.\thabasca. was , 
ceded to the Government, leaving the red men 
of the farther north to be dealt with at a later 
period, a much more- difficult task, owjng to 
their inaccessibility and long freedoni from con- 
trol. In 1899 Mr. Laird c<.)ncluded the' '^rc^i 
treaty, known as Treaty 8. with the Crccs, 

■ Beavers and Chippewayans <jf the I'cace River 
and contiguous cwi'intry. It was another re- 
markable agreement in which the reel men 
signed away forever their blood rights in a ter- 
ritory. five himdred miles in length from the 
.\thabasca River to Great Slave Lake, a treaty 
that, in the picturesque language oi the docu- 
ment, is to last 'as long as the sun shines and 
the water runs.' The jourriey of th< Treaty ' 
Commission with Mr. Laird at its head, was a 
notable one. It was notable a^'-a matter -of 
contrast. 'Whereas itrthc 'Seventies' he had 
to cover the distaitce between Winnipeg and 
Battleford by cart or on horseback,, acrosis 
great stretches of unoccupied and untillod 
lands, on this jourjiey the railway hadreached 
Strathcona With' all the chanj^es and develop- 

■ ments involved in its htiihTmg. From Edmon 
ton northward, howevei*, the primitive ovcrlan | 
trail. had to be taken to Athabaspa Landing, 
and thereafter covering rivers, Iffkes and land, 
as they form the' two thousand mile route by 
the Pe^ce River north, and, returij by. th(yAtha- Reaching I^esster SlaVe Lake, a/inemor- 
ahle gathering took place, vvheii hvtrtdf-c<ls of 
tribesmen vvi^t their chie.f,s formefl a great 
tented city siirround^ng the w!(mer tents of 
the Treaty Commi-ssioners. lywas a signifi- 
cant day, too, for the red rnjyfi, for thciy, were 
asked to part with their rights in an area as 
large as an empire. 

" 'Possc.ssing a natiwc in which firmness 
and fairness met,VaS/?^Ir: Laird has been hap-

"The extent to which -Indian interests are 
confined to the Reserves" makes for the ab- 
sence of serious crime, but on the other hand, 
Mr. Pedley says, "the deprivation of various 
forms of legitimate excitement and amusement 
encourages the inclination among them to

yFrom reading the hiindred anuU-fifty pdd 
pages of school reports in the Indian Blue- 
Bosk, it is difficult to arrive at-a^wholes.ale esti- 
mate of the , progress of education- among 'the 
children. Here it is e'Tiinently satisfactory: 
".An unusual interest is taken in education by 
these 'Indians." writes one agent of a band 
in Alberta, ""and it is the exception, not the 
rule, for their children to be away from a 
school." There it is disheartening: ""The sub- 
ject of education is one our Indians do not 
seem to appreciate." writes Mr. MacPherson 
of a Nova Scotian band of Micmacs; "atteiidr 
anee Is, meagre and progress slcAv." In one 
placc^ school buildings arc urgently rciiuired. 
in another such as exist are being closed. Per- 
haps the only unqualified remark to be passed 
on the subj.ect is one of ad miration ..for the care 
the Government and the local school authori- 
ties expend on the children and the justice of 
the principle applied, that the denomiriatif/ 
of the teaclier sliould be decided by the re- 
ligi«?us ntajprity of the school. In Qubcec and 
Ontario, of tonrse, the schools are largely in 
the hands of— Catholics. "^L maV say confi- 
tl^iitly." writes Father Conjure, S.J., of the 
Wikwenikong Industrial School, Ontario, "thai 
the school is contributing largely to the eleva- 
tion of the moral t(jne and development of 
habits "oi thrift and industry, the enlighten- 
menj: of : the mind generally and the improvc- 
meiif. ofc physi<5fue arriong our Indians. ^ Olir

dealing with Indian legends.

Fate of the Fur Seals 

On the Pribilof Islands is a herd of fur seals 
quite ignorant of the quarrel now being waged 
concerning theili. Yet tlu' ([uarrt'l is .serious. 
On March 15, Fre'sidenl Taft sent a special 
message to Congress onthe subject, and a bill, 
leaving tVic matter of the fur seals at ilu' dis- 
cretion of the Secretary of I'nnuiuicc and l.a 
bor, was drafted. This action \v.i> cnii>rquc)ii 
upon, if not t^e direct outgrow ih oi. an investi- 
gation made by a'Comniiucc III tlic (.'anip-Firc 
Clul), of- which commiucf \\ illinui T. llorna- 
day, director of ihe llronx Zoological I'ark. is, 
chairman. Tin- 'ciiii.s i.i ilic draUi-d bill watc 
satisfactory to ilic Cainji-lMic (.'lull's conunit- 
tee, and they cNpected iIumh' wnnld be lui tni- 
ther slauj^htcr "i seals in tlu- fntnii . Ibu when 
they heard ot Secretary Xagt-l's leieiil order 
to kill off part of the her<l ''for the herd's g.jLid" 
they objected. In the course"- of correspond- 


Director of the Bronx Zoological Gardens, 
^>w York City, who is protesting against the 
action of the Department of Commerce and 
Labor iii ordering^ the iciHTrig off of large num- 
bers of the male seal9 on the Pribilof Islands. 

ence accusations were made by Mr. Honiaday 
to' the effect that Walter L Lembkey. o^^^he 
Fur Seal Board of the Bureau of FTsIiefies, was 
interested in the seal industry and that he had 
influenced Secretary Nagel and Commissioner 
Bowers to issue that order. Oh May. 2^, Secre- 
tary Nagel wrote to Mr. Hornaday as follows : 
"You are of the opinion that. in the me^n- 
time the preservation of the seaKhe"'rds would 
be' furthered by a clo.'sed season upon the isl- 
ands for a certain, nurnber of years. As to this 
there is, to say the least, a difference of opin- 
ion. Those vyho have been charged with the 
responsibility , to investigate these conditions 
advise that a cessation of the killing will only 
play into'the hands of the pelagic sealers. They 
are of the opinion that the killing of a large" 
proportion of the male seals is not ohly safe but 
conduces to .the preservation of the herd. If is 
proposed for the present to proceed upon this 
theory, as Congress is understood to have' con- 
templated when the law was enacted. The 
President and the State'* Department are fully 
advised of what it is proposed to do. I think 
it right to advise you. because you seem fO con- 
template steps to have the policy of this de- 
partment reversed. Inasmuch as the season is 
approaching, any action of that kind ought to 
be taken promptly." 

Secretary Xagel also asked the Camp-Fire 
Club to furnish specific charges against Special 
Agent Leiubkey. Secretary Nagel is now on 
his wa,^' to Alaska, and in his absence Wenja- 
inin S Cable, .■\ctiiig Secretary of Commerce 
an<l babor, declares the cliarges against Mr, 
I.eiuhkev ha\e been nivestigaled and found 
•■\snlioni ;in\- basis \vliale\er m , fact." ,1 he 
New \'o;k 'runes ( iJein. ) obscrxes on this 
quesLiuii : 

"If thai cliar-e is true Mr."- bcnibkey is 
'ntanifesth- unfit to rmilrmif a- a member of' 
the lK)ar(i. It is not ' iiecev.-,ai y lor ilio Camp 
l-'ire Cdub to prove lli.'it the otli. lal repoi v 'oi 
i.|(),ooo seals remaining in a herd once num- 
bering millions is gro.ssIy exaggerated, al- 
though it is a matter of supreme Inteiest it the 
club's estimate of but 60,000 seils now leit is 
correct. It is not even necessary to prove the 
furthei- charge that, under Secretary ^Nagel, 
'representatives of the United States Govern- 
ment on the Pribilof Island.s have permitted 
• female and young seals. 'to be killed, skinned., 
and sold in defiance of. law.' The Fur Seal 
Board must l^e purged of members whQ.iiave 
any commercial interest in the depletion of the 
Jherd. This accomplished, the abuses of which 
Mr. Hornaday complains will cease." 

The New' York Tribune (ReT?.), on the 
other hand, presents an array of experts who 
urge that tlie only way to preserve the herd is 
to kill the superfluous males. The extermin- 
ation, they say, is due wholly to pelagic seal- 
( rs„ and notably to the Japanese. To quote 
Hr. David Starr' Jordan, one of the experts: 

"There, around the fir?t of August, when 
ihe^-femafr seals seek, the open ocean f or_food , 
these Japanese sealers form a cordon of bonts', 
through which the breeding seals must pass to 
^geT to their feeding banks. Naturally large 
nuinbers of them are killed, and the death of 
ev*r/'(€male seal means the death of her un- 
born you ng.^and the starvation of her pup on 
shore, thereby trebling the destruction. The 
male seals stick to the islands in the sumtjipr, 
so practically the entire catch of the pelagic 
sealers consists of females. It is this, and this 
alone, which threatens the extinction of the 
herd. . . ^ 

"On the other hanH. the killing off of the 
superfluous male seals in no way injures the 
herd. In fact, when the number of males is too 
great the fierce fighting on the outer border of 
ihe rookeries disturbs the breeding. In 1896 
I saw 4.000 yOung males fighting to get into, 
the rookeries every day. Some of the older 
males which barred their way weighed 400 pr 
500 pounds apiecei and were as strong as griz- 
zly, bears. The fighting was often very fierce 

in this Dr. Frederick. .\. Lucas, director of 
the Brooklyn Institute of Ai4& and Sciences, 
and many others agree. The New York Even- 
ing Post (Ind.) believes that "Secretary Na^el 
is, beyond question, as eager as the Camp-Firc 

. Club to preserve the seals," and the Birffalo 
Express (Ind; Rep.) believes that the infor- 
mjition furnished by Dr. Jordan and the other 
experts would make a long investigation of 
this matter unnecessary. The Baltimore Am- 
erican (Rep.) is with the officials as against 
the club, and the Ssin Franci.sco Chronicle 
( Ind.) remarks, "what a refreshing thing . it 
would be to see the United States take a posi- 
tive attitude about pelagic sealing and' then 
see that the herd gcts^adequate protection. But 
the New York World (Dem.) concludes: 

"The charges made by the Camp-Fire Club 
that Secretary Nagel has failed to prevent the 
slaughter of .seal on the Pribilof Islands and 
that employees of the departrhent have a per- 
soniil interest in seal-killing are an added reas- 

. on for turning on the light by electing a Dem- 
ocratic Congress that will make a sweeping in- 
vestigation into the condition-of the National- 
Government. This is a comparatively small 
matter, but it goes. to show, the widespread 
necessity for a house-cleaning." 

The WorId% Only Emperor 

' If one of the original Caesars awoke today 
and heard diplomatists talk about Czar, Kaiser, 
Imperator, Empereur, Mikado, etc., he would 
be sorely perplexed. In his day there was only 
one K.mperor. Theoretically, so is there only, 
one today — direct heir of Julius himself. And 
that emperor is none other than William "' 
Hohenzollern,- The titlfe of emperor, it is true, 
has become the badge of every new dynasty. 
We now have the "Emperor of Bulgaria." But 
there were no imaginary grounds nec essary 
for applying the title to the ruler of the German 
' Empire, „ Gcfman,, kings had been emperors — 
Roman cmperdrs — for centuries. So Kaiser 
AViihelm is today. He is not F^mperor of Ger- 
many; there is no such per.sonage. He is the

did not remember "the i£mpire of tiic Gauls," 
which had been proclaimed so long before by 
Civilis, But' he certainly meant to proclaim 
himself something more than a mere local king 
of France. He meant to set himself up as the 
successor of the Frankish emperors in the do- 
minion of the West. He openly gave himself 
out as the sticces.sor of Gharlmagne, riot as the

Patrick Cudaliv, head of one >>i the greatest 
pork-paqking tinii- in the world, was born at 
C'allan,, Kilkenny County, Ireland, on March 
17, 1849. The clay, usually celebrated in honor 
of Ireland's paiiini saint, was not observed in- 
Callan that year, for the fajnine, which had fol- 
.lowea the potato blight of a few years previ- 
ous, had gripped the whole of that section of 
Ireland, and poverty, misery, starvation, and 
*death had ground the people down to a depth 
they- had nevei- before reached. • 

, The' elder Cudahy had been a prosperous' 
farmer, but a succession bf bad harvests had 
gradually stripped hirri of all his possessions, 
ancl- when .Patrick was born, his parents were 
confronted with the alternative of staying to 
meet death by starvation, or of emigrating, as 
hundreds -of thousands of their fellow country- 
men had. already done. They chose the latter 
course, and when the baby Was three months 
old, his fa'ther sold, the remnants of the pro- 
perty, and started for America. 
~^They came in a sailing-vessel that took 
seven weeks to make^ the voyage, and be- 
cause of their scanty resources, tTiey isufTered 
"many hardships on" the way. When they 
landed at Castle Garden the father found there 
_.were plenty of opportunities for work in the 
City of. New York. His business, however, 
was farming,' and he had come with the deter- 
mination to take that business up again. 

He thought at first of trying Connecticut or 
some other of the -New England states, but 
found that the wages of farm laborei-s were 
so low and the cost of farm land in the region- 
so high that it would take years of work be- 
fore he could hope to make the first payment 
on a farm of his own. The railroads at the 
time were sending thousands of immigrants 
into the. Middle West, and were ofifering 
• farms, to permanent settlers at a low rate. The 
elder Cudahy took advantage of this, and after 
he had worked in New York a few weeks, to 
earn the necessary money to pay for the pas- 
sage, he joined one of the immigrant gangs 
' and went to. Wisconsin. 

Chance, as much as anything else, led him 
to settle at Wauwatosa. near Milwaukee. Wis- 
consin had been admitted as a State of the 
Union the pr-ev^ious year, J'he town of Mil- 
waukee had^ few thousand inhabTfaTiits, and 
had only recently arrived at the dignity of, a' 
short railroad line, 

"Biit it was a section full of opportunities, 
and of these the elder Cudahy took full advan- 
tage. His knowledge of farming, was sound, 
and his ability to work was endless. Witjain 
a few years of the time he had arrived a penni- 
less immigrant he had a farm paid for and well 
stocked and had begun to save, a little money. 
At first he had fSised grain, as the oUier 
farmers did. G.radually Iris attentioji was 
turned from this line to the raising, of food 
animals, and finally, to hogs as h is on ly pro- 
duct Patrick attended schooLin the winter, 
and at other seasons helped with the farm" 
work. His father was selling fortyor fifty hogs 
a year, and was slaughtering about ^ score 
inore. They paid him as nothing else ever had 
and his constant advice to the boy was: 

"Stick to the pig. There's money in Mm, 
and we can grow the best pigs in the world 
here." . , 

The pork-products business of the'Middle 
West was rapidly growing, and the demand 
for the meat in the manufacturing arid com- 
mercial cities of thb East was so great it could 
not be met. Thpr^ W3S also .a growing field 
for export, arid packers were struggling to Or- 
ganize the trade and lead the farmersinto hog- 
raising,- so that advantage could be taken of it. 
When Patrick Cudahy Avas twelve years 
bid hjs schooling ended, and for two' years he 
i.gnored his father's advice tc stic^k to the pig, 
and got a place afe'delivery b( y in a Milwaukee 
grocery store. I , 

'"You're a fool not to befin right," he was 
told, "for you'll have to comb back tb the pork 
business.." . l_ __ . ■ 

The idea that his advise had iri mind was 
that of hog-raisirig. YoungJCudahy, however, 
■ had no intention of being | farmer. He was 
going to be a storekeeper, a|id tTTe running of a 
grocery .store sjcemed to l^ni as good as any- 
thing else. 

He retnaiiWd as delivery boy and as clerk 
for-two years.] and thp dcHlar^aUveck pay with 
which he bad/begun had increased to two dol- 
Jar.s- * The otter of three. 'dollars a week more 
by the Roddis Packing Co. braught him ■ to 
that concert^! He was a strong, stocky, tireless 
boyjand it was his ability to g^t goods deliv- 
ered, to work frorri five o'clock m the .morning 

'until he was nu longer wanted at night, that - 
earned him the offer. 

While the Roddis Co. was not a very big 
concern,-it did handle animals from the hoof 
4tp to 'the delivery to consumers, and this tact 
enabled Cudiahy to learn ilie busines,-, ihor- ■ 
oughly. it took strcnuou- .arminuni on his 
p4rt to convince his employer- ih:u he could 
do other things besides dri\e a wagon ui'- 
hustle out an order of meats. Finally, he was 
given a chance, and during the six years he re- 
mained with the company he worked in every 
'department from the killing-bed to the office- 
TThe. knowledge of stock he had gained on. 
the farm was now supplemented by a thorough 
understanding of dressed meats, and he had 
als6 begun to see possibilities of entering into 
business for himself. The packing-houses al- 
■ ready in existence were growing at an amazing' 
pace, and, as the-iawning regions of the West 
were swinging into line and, giving some indi- 
' cation of what they were capable of producing, 
there was no"apparent limit to the amount of 
money it was possible for a man who, under- 
stood the business to make. 

Cudahy had been working hard' and saving 
iridustriously, but as his 'wages were still low, 
he had not been able to save much money. 
With Roddis he Had been able to get an in- 
sight intcTthe business and to acquaint himself 
with all departments. That was as far as he 
could go, and as he had reached the limit in 
pay he left and went to work for Layton & Co. 
His career here was little more than a repeti- 
tion of his experience in the former place, al- 
though he increased his knowledge and his re- 
putation increased among the packers. 

He work.ed with Layton & Co. four years, 
making ten years in all that he had been en- 
gaged at the packing industry, and then he 
made his first upWard step when he became 
superintendent of the plant of Lyman h 
Wooley; The company was doing a fair busi- 
ness, and Cudahy was able to force its growth 
by leaps and bounds. Though he did not have 
a free hand, arid was not able to carry out all 
the plans he had determined on, he made good 
to such an extent that the Armours brought 
him Over to superintend the plant of Armour & 
Plankington. Philip D. Armour was especially 
interested in him and gave him full sway in 
the business im Milwaukee. 

Money, which had hitherto come to Cudahy 
slowly and on]j^ after brutally hard work, now 
began to roITiri, and he became one of the 
highest salaried superintendents in the 
ness. This enabled him to save in the way he • 
had dreamed of, and he steadily piled up 
money, ■waiting fo invest in a business tb^t 
would be .conducted exactly as he thought, one 
should be conducted, and of which he could 
reap the profits. • 

His chance came in 1876", when he ha<l 
— saved money enough to buy one-sixteenth in- 
terest in the firm. During the previous year 
the main office h^d beeri transferred 'toChica^ 
go, Philip D. Armour was in charge there,:and 
was engineering the gigantic enterprises that 
were destined to make the firm supreme iri its 
line. In Milwaukee, Cudahy had charge of 
the packing plant, and the improvements he 
. introduced made it one of the finest in the 
v.'oi.'d - 

When Plankington died, in 1888, Cudahy, 
together with his brother Michael, who was 
also a member of^^the Armour ^firm, took over 
the, -Plankington interest and the name of the 
firm was changed to CudaLhy-.Brothers. The 
limit of growth in Milwaukee was reached in 
1893, and the disastrous fire of that yeaT made 
a change advisable, So the partners erected a 
mammoth plant and—laid out a town' some 
miles out of the city. They named the place 
Cudahy, nnd practically all of its inhabitants 
depend on the pork-packing industry for their 
living, and the to>vn itself ^s a prosperous and 
thriving* industrial village. - 

The growth of the concern, now incorpor- 
ated as the Cudahy Brothers Company, has 
been uniformly steady and solid. The export 
trade of' the firm is especially heavy, and the 
goods are always in active ITemand in foreign 
markets. The Cudahys handle between se\^en 
and eight htindred thousand hogs every year, 
and the business done amounts to from nine to 

ten millions of dollars. ' . 

.A large part of this far-reaching success is 
due to the foresight, energy, and tenacity of 
Patrick Cudahy, who. as a grocer's erriand boy, 
began work for one dollar a week, arid had to . 
workfifteeri hours a day to earn that, and for 
fifteen wars following his start labored un- 
ceasingly find for many hours a day at the 
hardest kind of drudgery. ■ ' .

The Provincial Game Warden did a good 
stroke of bnsin'Ciis ihc other day wlien^lTe arres- 
ted Li. C. C^larke, of Seattle, for having elk in 
lu.-i possession. The defendant was running a 
linibcr-cruising camp at Kyuocjuot Sound, up 
the \\'c*^'t Coast, and men in his employ had 
been killing elk for use as meat in the camp, in 
open Ttctiancc of the law. The information 
reached the game warden as long :ig<> as last 
May, and he spared no effort to gc-lT together 
■ suflicieiTt evidence to, secure a "conviction. 
When brought before Magi.strale Hay ward, 
Clarke pleaded guilty, and in conseiiuencc waN 
awarded •a much lighter penalty than would 
have otherwise ha\'c been the case, being fined 
.'?75 and costs, with the promise of a jail sen- 
tence on a repetition of the offence. Warrants 
are Out for the arrest, of the men who did the 
actual killing, but tli«y are out of the cuuuiry 
at present. , 

Thi; game' warden has beet] giving the Isl- 
and a great deal more attention than it used 
to get, lately, and let us hope that the good 
work will continue. Because a game warden 
does not advertise his prcsencc'ever\ where liv 
goes, he frequently gets blamed for not being 
there, but in tlie game. warding businos it doc-^ 
:iot always pay to advertise. , When you thiid< 
ihe warden is at the other end of the peninsula 
he jMt verv'pdssibly be cached under a bush 
within a few yards of you waititig to hear sonic 
of that continuous banging of guns vvhich arc 
evcfy day reported to hini from souie ilistrici

There \vei-e two boats on ilie lake, aiid in 
each two men were engaged in fishing tor ba^>. 
Sport was not c|iiile as fast ynd furious as they 
might have liked .and as the two l»oats drew 
close together, the occupants eiigaged in con 
versation. While they were discussing the' cx! - 
sedness of tlie ui^captured bass wliich refused 
to be beguiled, a. bunch of mallanls hai)pencd 
to llv over the boats v,ithin easv reach of a 
>hotgiui in that provoking manner ni wliuli 
this kind of thing will happen; in ihc Vt«;^e

■■'riiat would liaw been a line >hoi, wi.iildn t

"\'o\\ bet," came the answer from tiu- oilier

• "Ciame warden niithing. VVe never see a

Here ended the conversatiiMi. 

In case the last s|)eaker should see tiiis. it , 
may interest him to knt)w that at the lime he 
was actually talking to the Provincial Cianie 
Warden aiul a deputy ga'nic warden, so that ' 
perhaps it was just. as vyell that he did not

When I first saw the long-leaf pine country 
of North Carolina I wondered what Bob White 
could find to live upon in that wa^stc of sand 
and scrub oak and pine. 

Cultivated farms were tens of miles apart, 
ami these raised no considerable (piantity :of 
eowpeas or otlier forage-making crops. Fruit, 
ti iinatoes and cotton were the il^iain ground pro- 
ilucts, and. of course, when gatherecl there was 
no involuntary tithe for*. F'.ob. 

In the scrub I saw nothing like our North- 
ern weedseed plants, so P.ob's livelihood was 
for a time a mystery. I'ollowing a conihioTr 
custom, however, I cut- open the crop'of tlie 
first. ipiail killed and sent the content'- t-i i>nr 
-Xgiicultural Bureau at Washington. 

Reply came promptly back i<lentifyiiig the 
l)ulk of the seeds as thos't of the bush clover, 
with liere ami there a seed of wild Soloninns 
seal. •

an ol<l negro's eabiif, with the usiial swalhnv's 
iiest chimney const ructed of sticks and cla\'. 
Back' of tlu cabin > .n a hillside the proprietor 
was turning over the soil with theaid etf a 
\ cry „scravvny steer^tied to a plow by an in-' 
L^eniiiMs tangle of ropes- chains ;oid leather. 
Riding up tt» t lie eild negro, wcimpiireil if there 
were a'liy birds in the neighl>orh(>*)d. 

Ifc replied that lhcr c was a "g ang" or 18 or 
JO birds vvhich "usecl" near the syvami) "right 
over yonder," indicating a knoll about half a 
mile distant. 

.\ piece of sniall silver brought a san<l 
.shark's 'smile to th^ leathery face, and; leaving 
hiiti, we crosse«t' the (titch at the edge of the 
field and rode toward the knoll. 

Reaching»its crown, we looke<l, doVn its 
-critb covered slope i" a swamp of holly, mis- 
ilctoeand stiinted pines — a natural refuge foii 
frightened ami scattered binls, as we were s.onn 
to find out. « — 

With the dogs diligently .scouring the sun- 
ny slope vve rode slowly along behind iheiii.

coming up honored the declaration that birdj^ 
wefe present. 

pi.smounting, we ajiproached the dogs, and 
when 30 or inorr feet away a big covey burst 
iiitcrTfic air. x 

Two fcrii-dis fell, and -thertf est of tlic covey 
flew (iown along the edge of the swamp and 
pitched into it. / " « ' ■./

Hardly had w^ eiiterfed tte swatiip when a 
bird flushed and went twisting through the tan- 
gle in a maimer to rtiakc a jacksnipe brown 
with envy. T^ken by surprise^ neither, of lis 
■ pulled a trigger. . „ ,•' 

The dogs were sloshitig through tlie wire 
up to their bellies w'liilew*e did- little better 
1)y|f\valking wdien.^opportunity offered on the 
marsh t,ufts or "nigger heads" which wev; 
sprinkled through the swamp. 

Another bird sprang up before us -and wiiui 
shot free, as we were laboriously pullijig one 
legs after anothef outJjf the sucking mtttl, ami 
then Belle nailed one on a "nigger head" and 
gave us a chance to niake ready. 

At his rise the not unusual thing happened. 

We fired simultaneously: the bird fell, and 
it was not until we opened our guius lo take oyt 
the empty shells that either knew the other had 

.\ little farther on Felice pointed. My com- 
panion courtetnisly gave me" the shot, and Fe- 
lice handed me the draggled bird. 

Hunting through the swamp -was hard 
work, but here and there, with freipie«4-j«isses 
in the dense underbrnsh- we picke<l up seven 
birds and finally emerged into the sunlight, 
niud-covered and weary; but satLsfiecJ. with the 
results of our labor. 

.After .S(jme co-(jiierative mudscraping wc 
called the dogs to heel and, mounting our nags, 
turned their willinj; heads homeward. 

The tiresome Avork in the swamp had rather 
taken the tuck out of Belle, and the puppies 
w ere also qutte willing to canter in the road be- 
hind the horses, but Felice was morning bright.- 
Like a bit of rA<hym,, she was forever giving off 
her energy in enormous cpianf(itves, and still the 
loss was.not apparent. ' ' 

-She scoured the fields and combed the road- 
side scfub, and just as we turned from the 
wood's lane into the main highway she stopped 
short in her gallop near a towering JMue w ith- 
in a rod of the lane.

point to you. my brothers, who love l-'elice and

Wc walked up behind the grand little ladv. 
and passed .her where she stood.

the aironly to leave tlirec of their number be-

them separately, presenting each <nie, yvith

the introduction of these birds, were the failure 
to establish (juail., sandgrouse, chukaL and red-

in, the attenipt.s to aicclimatixe pheasants ni

eessful inlrotluction of the partridge on native 
game birds should receive careful considera- 
tion. The partridge is inignacipit>; at breeding 
time, aiid, though there is small probability 01 
its killing native game birds, its prcsencemay 
create a struggle for nesting places that will 
prove serious to the X'ir.ginian tpiail. The e^- 
j)'eriment of_ acclimatizing the partridge ha.s 
been expensive, aiid the niost'of live birds is. 
put in round npmbers at $150,000. Consider- 
ing the high estimatichi in which the iiative 
game birds are held by .sportsmen aiid farmers. 
Mr. (Jldys .suggests that hiore attention should .

ricasc do iidt take this (|iusti'iii si.ri( mslv, 
or }(ni will ro\-cal yoyuscli as naturally silly. 

And il is not clever to he naturally silly. 

riu' ^illin<-^-> under discussion is the prodint 
of artifice, the high acliie\'emcni of those wlio 
have a sensitive knowledge of vvliat "is the 
correct tiling." Tradition, it is said, dies hard, 
Itiil a jjopular fallacy does not even think of 
dyiiig, It is really impertinent^ in its robust 
vigor, and its indifference to hard knocks. One 
of the most lively and impervious fallacies is 
that a woman is never chartning unless she is 
stupid. Some jieoplc, hetraying bluntly their 
idea of what shoidd determine' a w'oman's at- 
titude towards life, add. that "men don't like 
^vl uncn^vlio ihink." This hoary popular. fallacy 
is forever lifting its wicked oUl head and-e«- 

couraging thousands of silly girls to be even 
more silly than natu re in t en de d or desired 
-when she gave them very moderate powers of 
thought to start witli. The "world," how- 
eve r7~a[ir3TTres us that there is much \'ir.tuc in 
the- "silly"' phase. To begin with, it requires 
considerable wit to assume the right sort of 
silliness. :~It is of all attitudes the most fas- 
cinating, and of all enemies the most danger- 
ous, Of course a Avoman sliould not' betray 
her intelligence when-she is trying to attract a 
husband, especially if the possible husbantl 
is younger than herself. She must conceal 
that she is wise when following the chase. But 
when the quarry is caught, and the positio<n oL 
capturcr and captured are modified, it is not 
the childish, brainless, thoughtless wo man 
\vho has the best of things. Woman, when 
man is once hers, has to think a great deal. 
or she will never be able to keep him. You 
can't keep. even a cat or a bird without some 
thought. The cult of silliness is, all the same, 
rather jike the cult of deformed feet; or black 
teeth, or tatooed faces, or shaven beard^g— no 
one could endure these things if they "were 
naturai. Yet there are countries where such 
physical defects are cultivated as a sign of 
distinction and high breeding. There is real- 
ly very little difference between mutilating, 
the body because fashion has decreed that ta- 
tooed faces or crumpled feet arc fasciiiating, 
and crushing the mind and soul because it is 
fashionable to be silly. . 

"Anything- is better th^n- taking ourselves 
.seriously." . 

That seems to be the popular point of view. 
People seem to forget that only the very hap-* 
py. jojous living races are, not afraid to be 
serious. The morta'lh' sick shrink from dis- 
cussing death. The healthy can discuss it 
without being afraid. Whein we 'leave the 
man and woman game and deal with life, which 
— shall we say unfortunately?— ^is not all lox'e 
and marriage, we find the fallacy ;^ that: woTnTTT 
.should never think .seriously pressing very 
hardly on them* — . 

What ! not think when we have to earn 
our'TTving! What! not think when Fate has 
left us Lonely and unprotected ! Possibly the 
fallacy Was never genuine e.ven as a fallacy. 
What its originator meant was not that wo- 
mcji should never think, so flia't the vanity of 
man should never be offended. 

What is wrong with the English idle' 
classes is not heavy seriousness, fof- which a 
skilful assum"^)tion of silliness is supposed to 
be a goo^ remedy, but dcadnes.s. torpor, 
apathy. We willingly admit tliat seriousness 
in people who are only half alive is appalling. 
' a vivacious, energetic, hopeful race., it' 
?*; not in itself an affliction. \Therefore when 
we constantly hear it asserted that clever peo- 
ple are rarer today than they were, we cannot 
altoirether lend ourselves in "agreement. 

The failings of the present day are un- 
doubtedly many, btit stupidity is hardly one of 
theni (unless, as I believe already pointed oufT' 
as a fashionable cult). .-\nd there are few chil- 
dren today who do not strike one as being de- 
cidetlly cleverer than their parents. There is 
indeed so much cleverness about today that it 
is perhaps more exhausting than the stupidity 
of a. former generation. Xot only, however, 
arc women better educated, but they have 
many interests which have the effect of stimu- 
lating the mind and 'developing their dor- 
mant faculties. Life, moves .so quickly today 
that only the, nieVitally alert can hope to com- 
pete with the rich, of whom it may b'e re- 
marked en pa.«sant that they would not prob- 
ablyi be rich if they had not originally been 
(flAvtr. Even the brain capacity of the modern 
ybung man is more developed than that of the 
ancient and unemplovcd bore of . a previous 
ijeiieration. whorlraving f^urvivcd to the pres- 
ent day. is to be met with, handipg roinul

Commonsense, again, enables tlie middle-

between one -well-dressed for her age and a 
frump. But what can., be said — either as to 
"commonsense Or sense of beauty, for the wear-

only be realizo^l when seen with its Wearer in

Seen on the stage, it could really on? be

Wha$ We Can Do Without 

Love' ami appreciation of beautiful things 

have been carried Jo such a- point that many of 
us have lost our seVise of proportion. Acquisi- 
tiveness was. an old-fashioned virtue; it is 
modish to despise our great-grandrhother's 
custom of cherishing possessions many and 
varied. 'on the principle of'\keep a thing seven 

years and you will find a forTt." Are we 
ourselves so, very much their shperior? Housed 
in our little l)ung;^lows.. with Wardrobes of 
r^iiliputian size, in which it is impossible tO 
retain any superfluous article of clothing, we 
are sometimes faced with an emergency. It is 
not always convenient to have tcj buy\ extra, 
garments when a sudden need for iheni_03^kcs 
their pcj.ssession necessary, and there are occas- 
ions when we realize that ihe se\ en years 
policy -O^'as not s\ieh a bad one. Thrifty house- 
keepers .sometimes organize a series of boxes 
fitted into odd corners, marked With -the name 
of the articles they contain , . 

W'e other's, however, throw aside al] things 
that have served theiV "day, on the jirinciple of 
clearing out. Hn tlie other hand, we. have cul- 
tivated our su-call.et4 sense of beauty to such 
a j)itcii that \vc cannot resist any opporttmity 
of ac(|nir;n,; a \asc, a cushion, a piece of em-- 
broidery, a mug, a bit -of silver, old or modern., 
a picture, if \\ e have the cotirage, to make the , 
ncces-ary dutlay. T.'io mad4- of uS(l<J not at' 
all realize the e\i)enditure entailed in the pur- 
chase of pictures. Where we might save and 

'purchase \mu real treasure, wefritter away our 
cash on lialf a dozen or so of reproductions. 
,V rrxiiVi hnn'.: rounil and round, with pictures 
f.- <o f.ttiL^uini; that .at.iy man with the artistic 
sense would i)e tired f)ut in an hour. No reader 

wou,ld flinjL^ himself itrt'i a Iil)rary'and throw- 
open half a d'l/cn hodks at once, all differing' 
from each other. ( )ur. libraries do not offend 
becanso, howe\er antagonistic-Uhey may be to 
the visitor, hv i- not recjuired to read their con- 
tents, f.ui our pictures hang, eloquent wit-

mental da\-. "f the period when wc.were inr certain thoughts, poetic or reli- 
gious, loni/. since t,u](*(l into the general march . 
of events. Why do ,we not cast them aside, 
parijcularly if they arc mere cheap reproduc- 
tions, when a certain inental attitude has been 
l(~)st in the proces^ of time? We look back 
.soinefimes with a smile at the memory of the 
frieiu'ls w c used to cherish. , They have gone 
their way; we hauc-ehosen ours. The books 
we ha\ e ceased to rhapsodize over have given 
place T) new favorites, and are cast- into a cup- 
board or lie 'in the lowest shelf. The pictur»cs

we never put floVvers, qiLOnly on the dayS W'heh ,

for instan.<^c.. has ceased to wear a crinoljne.

why <lo we leave her photo on the mantelpiece? 
It dates the gentle lady hopelessly. When she 
conies to dine with us dressed with a toupee" 
and a clinging gown, it is only neces.sary to ■ 
glance at that antirfuated photo, and her pa- 
thetic devices stand revealed. W'hefi' we

^merieaa\S ? 

T/i r8o7 Morris K. Je.sup, since dead, made 
it pos.sil)lc for an expedition to bep^in work in 
the .■Northern Pacific, investigating^ the shores 
of American from the Cohimbia River -to 
Alaska and the corresponding shores of ^'Vsia 
down to* the line of Southern Siberm, for the 
purpose of studying the tribes and their cus- 
toms and folk-lore, wjth a view to ascertaining, 
if possible, whether or not tlicre were evidences 
< if contact. That work is still being carried 
on, and wonderful results- have been and are 
lieing obtained. Sufficient has been learned, 
vltready to bear out the theory that the native 
tribes of both continents originated in the 
same stock, and that the Indians of British 
Columbia .for instqince, are forty-second cous-^ 
ins to the Chukchecs and the Koryaks of 
•Northeastern A$ia. " 

It is between the Jatter-named- tribes of 
Asia and the Eskimos of Northwestern Am- 
erica that the closest resemblance has been 
discovered, however. It was found that there 
is a noticeable resemblance between their cul- 
ture and that of the Eskimos, and they have 
much the sam« religion and folk-lore. In fact, 
this resemblance was .^o striking that tw.o^ 
.scientists working independently of one an-~^ 
other came to the conclusion that there Was a 
close affiliation between Eastern Siberian folk- 
lore and that of Southern Alaska and British 
Columbia. - 

The expedition in other ways found by 
abundant evidence that far back at an extreme- 
ly remote period there must have been an inti- 
mate relationship Setween the Indian tribes 
of the, Pacific coast and the people x)f Eastern 
^\sia. The Chukchee, Koryak, Kamchadel and 
Yukaghir.'of Northeastern Asia are in reality 
to be associated with the American race of In- 
dians rather than with any Asiatic race. The 
investigations proved that they are much more, 
closely akin to the American Indians than to 
Asiatics. Originally of one family; they became 
-widely separated as time vi^ent on and isolated 
themselves. As, the, centuries passed some 
people mas;t have come in which Interrupted 
the close contact between the Siberian and 
American tribes. It is believed now that the 
disturbing feature were the Eskimo, who are 
comparatively new arrivals On the Pagpific side 
of, America, and who probably emigrated from 
somewhere east of the Mackehzie fiver.

Man is very old in America. It has been 
estimated that he has been here one hundred 
thousand years, if not more. The foundation 
of this belief is the existence of wclT marked 
varieties of ;the American race, the establish- 
ment of which must have occupied a vast 

period. The difierenceiiRtticSie types show 
tliat much time was necessary for their de- 
velopment. What took place during these 
great cycles may be surmised only. Recent in- 
vestigations by competfent scientists affirm the 
belief- that it was from the tribes which came 
into existence in this couijtry, that Asia was 
largely populated. From this it is logically de- 
ducted that the primitive culture which grew 
•slowly he:re was transplanted into Asia and 
then to Europe to become the basis of civiliza- 
tion as we have had it in Europe. , ,

theory that w:ith the settlement of Canada's

here again. 


onarchs With Many Titles 

Most of the crowned heads of Europe revel 
in a m ultiplicity o f styles arid dignities, , but 
apart from mere peerage s the rtilcr of the 
mightiest empire the world has. ever seen has 
to "be content with the simple formula, says 
London Answers, "George V., by the Grace of 
God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain 
and Ireland and of the British Dominions Be- 
yond the Seas, King, Defender of the Faith, 
F^mperor of India." 

Even in these titles the reference to the 
Mritons over seas was added oja)y on King Ed- 
ward's acce.ssion, and the style of Emperor of 
India wa.s conferred oh the British sovereign' 
late in Queen Victoria's reign. Queen Victoria 
was crowned .simply "Of the United Kingdom 
of Great Britain and Ireland, Queen, Defender 
oi the Faith," though on some of the e arly fcoi n-r 
age of her reign — the, florin, for instaitce— sTiQ 
is styled "By the Grace of God of all the Brit- 
ains. Queen, Defender oi the Faith" — a. fine, 
dignified and comprehensive style. 

Besides his\ regal appellation the. King has

Siegel wa.-. indif.',nant at l)cing'' called .a 
child. He was fifteen years old, and he could 
not help it if, -being small and slight, he Ioc)ked 
as though h-e' were only ten. Besides, h?; had 
come alone to this country in spite of parenfsd 
opposition, and had shown that he knew how 
to t^ke care of himself. 

So h^icame right back at the proprietor of 

the clothing-fetorc, prepared to argue the case, 

and, if he 90uld not get the coveted job, at 
least,^have it reftrsed- "on some other "ground 
than his age. He persisted in' renewing his 
request. He wanted a job and he wanted to 
go to work in that particular .store. 

In the end he had his way and was taken 
on as boy-of-ajl-work at a salary of three dol- 
lars and fifty cents a week. The hours were 
from eight to six most days, which gave him 
an opportunity to attend night school and 
complete the commercial studies he had begun. 
Such was the actual introduction to busi- 
ness of Henry Siegel. who has since become 
one of the foremost merchants of the United 

He was born in Enbigheim, Germany, in 
1852. His father had risen to" the position of 
burgomaster, and was in comfortable circum- 
stances, though not rich. As one of the pros- 
perous, farmers and wine growers of the dis- 
trict, (he had hoped that his sons would succeed 
to his business, but they had found America 
more attractive, and Henry, the youngest, also 
insisted on emigrating. 

So the boy got together his fewbelongings 
and, came across the Atlantic He was almosf 
penniless when he landed but his pluck carried 
him through. The Washingtofl position proved 
to be a good one for him, as; he became a sales- 
man in a few months. People liked to buy 
from him, for even when he grew well toward 
manhood he still Iqoked like a young bOy.' \ 

Inside of four jearSi he w-as earning fifteen 
dollars a week, a sum that seemed to him be- 
yond.^ the) reach of all except the' very wealthy, 
when he landed in this country. 

The insight he got into conducting busi- 
ness while he was working in the Washington 
store gave him an idea for stores along another 
line. General stores, such as exist in country 
towns, could be conducted in large cities even 
more advantageously than in villages, and he 
determined to start one embodying all his 
schemes as soon as he could get the money 
together. Two of his elder brothers had estab- 
lislied a store in ParkersbUrg, Pennsylvania, 
and when he had shown his ability as a sales- 
man, they gave him a chance in t^eir estab- 
lishment. Here he was not only a salesman, 
but manager and buyer when the proprietors 
were busy with other things. 

Siegel Brothers were .branching out and 
establishing other stores, . len .they estagk 
bhshed one in Ua^T'-'-^^iMirrr they admitted 
him as a partner. Here he ran things accord- 
ing to his own plan, and the store proved by 
far the most successful of all. ' It built up a big 
following in the town and surrounding county, 
and made money at such a rate that in i^7(> 
■ Siegel was able to move tq Chicago and begin, 
tjip manufacture of cloaks. At that time he 
was twenty-three years old, -about five feet one 
inch tall, and weighed a little over one hun- 
. dred pounds. 

"Siegel's lit'tle," an admiring business rival 
remarked, "hue he contains more concentrated 
energy than any other ten mfen in the city, no 
matter wh'at tlieir weight." 
— The cloak manufacturing business pros- 
pered, and Siegel was able later to take into 
partnership, on terms advantageous to, both, 
one «f .the brotHers for whom tie had gone, to 
work in Parkersburg a feW years before. Later 
he met Frank Co,oper, a merchant of cc^ual 
ability in business hustling, and . with him 
formed the famous alliance of Siegel, Cooper 
■ & Co.- -h , ■ 

Their first .store wa§ not pretentious, but it 
turned over vast piles of goods every year and 
made money, rapidly. Then, in 1893, the part- 
ners opened' their big store. This ^speedjly be- 
came j0Tfe~of the famous retail places of Chica.- 
go, and from the day it opened its "doors it lib- 
erally coined money for its proprietors. 

Such success only made Siegel more ambi- 
%tious. The field in New. York was one he 
especialy ^oveted. He was warned against 
"trying it, for the city was crowded with de- 
parthient, stores, with specialties- stores of all 
kinds, and seemed to have as many establish- 
ments as it could support. Some of th-em, in 
fact. vVere continually pn the ragged edge.ynd 
were struggling hard„ to, maintain their footing- 
•Siegel did not mind dismal prophesies or 
dark fdrebodings. 'With his partner he went 
ahead outlining hiiJ plans, and in 1896 the gr^at 
market-place on Sixth avenue was opened. The 
details li^ad been left for the most part to Sie- 
gel, and so perfect had beeti his organization 
that when the place was opened for business it 
Was in such condition that everything. worked 
$lohg as smoothly and harmoniously a* though 
' the place had been ,long established. 

Instead of having to sli'iigple for trade with 
etlier places, it seemed t""rin.' \<\r readv

and the !■'< nirteeni !i street store, the latter in 
what \sas once the Macy Iiiiilding. 

Jn the .-^ainc yc*ar that, he bought out Simp- 
.son (S. Crawford, he bought a controlling inter- 
est in the bus^ne,ss of Schlesingcr & Mayer, in 
Chicago. I'he deal involved considerably. over, 
.1 million dollars, btit Siegel was able to-^pay 
the money without detriment to the big inter- 
ests he already had in haiid- 

The latest big enterprise in which he has 
figured was the building of a latl^c <,lcpartment 
store in Boston, ilis partner, Frank- Cooper,' 
had died, and, Siegel carried through all- the 
later deals unaided. In its' day the Chicago 
store had been pronounced the finest retail 
business place in the world. The same -was 
true when he opened the^egel. Cooper block 
in New York. In Boston this process was re- 
peated. - , 

Out of all these -various enterprises in the 
past thirty-five years Siegel has made millions . 
of dollars, and he has' beefi as noteworthy a 
contributor to the revolutionin retail business 
as A. T. Stewart v/as in his day, or as John 
_VVanamaker was a little, later. Each Siegel 
stor? is virtually a city in itself,' for anything- 
can be bought there, quantities are unlimited, 
and on the payroll of the firm there are the 
names of over twelve thousa-nd .people. 




A new flag has been especially designed for 
Queen Mother .Alexandra, and now flies from 
Buckingham Palace, where she has continued 
to reside since the death of King Edwafd VII ,.^ 
■ The new flag is ,a strange combination of the and Danish flags in about equal pro- 
portions. It is chiefly remarkable zoologically. 
The field of the flag is filled with silhouettes of 
quaint beasts that never were on sea or, land. 

A careful observer can count about twenty 
of them, Mostly they ate lion-like.. On the 
British half of the flag there are seven lions, 
six passant, one rampant. Denmark not only 
contributes some quaint lions of her own to 
her half of the- flag, but throws in two horses, 
a winged dragon, a swan, a falcon, a goat and 
a seated bearl 

"An explanation of the meaning ot the vari- 
ous Danish symbol* may be of interest. The 
three' red lions on a blue ground in the top 
left corner of the flag represent the, original 
national coat- of arms of Ttenmark, the num- 
ber having reference to the three principal 
sounds of Denmark,' and the color to the sea. 
The two lions in the top right hand corjuer rep- 
resent S.chleswig, Below is another lion, 
with water lilies beneatlj, it, as an emblem of 
the King's sovereignty over the people of Got- 
land. The dragon typifies His Majesty's rule 
' over Wendenr, on the Pomeranian coast. 

Sweden i.s represented by the three crown* 
on the left side of the shield. fPhe white falcon 
stands for Iceland, the white bear for Green- 
land and" the goat for the Faroe Islands, in 
which goat breeding is a st^le industry. 

On the smaller shield in the centre are rep- 
resented the titles of the King of Denmarjc, 
who. besides being Lord of the Goths and 
Wendjsh people, is Duke of Schleswig Hol- 
stcin, Stormarn, Ditmarskcn. Lauemborg, Old- 
enborg and Delmenhorst. 

The nettle leaf in the top left corner of the 
small shield represents, Holstein, the swshi 
Stormarn, the horse's head Ditmarskcn, and 
the man, on horseback Lauemborg. Olderiborg 
is represented by the two beams on the left of 
the small central shield and Delmenhorst by 
the golden cross oh the right.

The Government of Inflia has just author- 
ized a special reward of Rs. 500 for the de- 
struction of the Gedanapur man-cafing tiger, 
which is believed to have been responsible for 
the deaths of 21 "persons in the lasi quarter. 

The increase in the ifeward offered, says the. 
.\Iadras Mail, comes none too soon, in view of 
the fact that for some years past, nian-eating 
has been the rule rather than the excfeption 
with tigers. In Ganjam one tiger, report^-.d to 
have been shot early this year", was said to have 
destroyed about 300 persons, another is. be-, 
lieved to have killed on loO. 

These, animals. are becoming a perfect ter- 
mor to the inhabitants of the outlying tracts, 
and it behoves the authorities to take special 
measures for the protection of the people. 

From the fact that some of these man,- 
caters frequently kill animals,' it Is evident tliai 
they are not, in most cases, tigers of^ the usual 
decrepit type, who take to killing human be- 
ings, because they are no. longer aide m kill 
. deer.- One, remedy, therefore, is tin |ir<-er\.i 
tion of game." Pending measures to ih.n on 1, 
considerably larger rewards ought to lie of 
fered in the areas specially affected.
